As befitting a Mechain discovery, it is a complex object even at the modest altitude. At 45x [when my scope works as a 12”] it looks good, like a pinched double. At 225x, the N part has an enhanced, elongated, and flattened NNE edge, and the S part has a broadening and an invagination at the S edge. It reminds me of Mickey Mouse. [Later I was told that my sketch looked like a sitting cat.]
The thick “spiral arm” curving SW from the N end of the “bar” or “apple core” is immediately noticeable and is well separated from the middle of the body. The “arm” that would be symmetric to this one is very subdued, shorter, and barely separable from the body. It may just be a faint extension of the body with a relatively defined edge, rather than an “arm”. Both “arms”, however, are relatively enhanced toward their ends.
OIII filter does little and actually subdues the core, but it makes immediately noticeable the extension of the longer arm toward the star pair in the SW. This extension cannot be held continuously.
