Really difficult! very faint and just a hint of fuzzyness

This really is a hard galaxy to see, just a wisp in 25mm and not much more in 12mm even though it is easy to locate , close to a Mag 9.65 star and in the same 25mm FOV as y U Ma, Phad, at Mag 2.4 although if Phad is in view everything else is washed out!

Not really the evening to be observing Galaxies, or anything else for that matter!
Only an indistinct haze in 12mm, nothing at all in 25mm
No feel of shape but easy to locate
