Description: The height of this galaxy was 88 degrees so it won't be in the better place. Despite of that the zenith is the last place where you want to look with a 2.5 meter long dobson. NE-SW elongated core is the dominant part of this galaxy. It's surrounded by fainter halo which appears to be spiral arms with averted vision. There is a clear darker area around the core.
