Just seen with averted vision. Whit UHC filter and averted it show slowly more detail. The small core grows somewhat brighter. It seems that the Eastern tip is slightly more wider than the western tip and also dimmer in haze that mark the outer edge of the whole galaxy. Towards the north and accompany the galaxy a faint string of stars swing around it to the east. I could see three-minute stars in a row from the western tip going west.
