I desribe it in my notes as just a faint puff of smoke. Higher power bring out a faint grouping of around 10 more or less 12-13Magnitude stars, around 7' in size. This grouping is show off a round shape to the north and draped down in a tear drop in a SW direction. Barely outstanding against the field of view, although with care it can be describe as a grouping. Further south in the field 218x a few brighter stars cling together can be seen. Just to the west of this asterism IC 4835 take its place but I could not identify it.
