Large but surprisingly faint, hazy with a not very bright central core, its sits in a rather dull and sparse FOV in 12mm

Really stunning, although took a bit of locating in a quite empty starfield
Fantastic feel of shape and size at all zooms, focusing made easy using the very orange star HIP 60305 at mag 6.30 which sits just outside the FOV
