Steve Coe, observing with a 13" f/5.6, notes: "Faint, small, very little elongated 1.2 X 1 in PA 30, little brighter middle at 150X."

This galaxy is towards the eastern base of the "Tadpole or Missing Mushroom cluster". My hopes were right on target and the little faint smear of light was just there were it should be. Although faint its light is evenly spread out. In my thoughts I nickname it "Sue's Galaxy" although she discover the asterism to the west of the galaxy. The soft haze looks slightly elongated NNE-SSW. The star field asterism 10' in size compliment the galaxy to the west.
