A uniform round halo which gradually brightens to a bright, circular, diffuse
core.  Interestingly, at 133x the core appeared fleetingly stellar but at
267x it seemed to increase in size and to become more amorphous.  The galaxy
is nearly centered inside of a triangle of 7th and 10th magnitude field stars.
