Reobservation, previously seen with 12 inches of aperture. Now with 20, the bar-like core and a spiral structure with one prominent arm and one or two more were visible. Sketch on black paper (white pencils), finished at the telescope. 360x, SQM 21.6, seeing 2 arcsec. South up, drawn field 10 arcmin, faintest stars Vm 15.

Beautiful, Ivan. Aperture does rule, especially when you are trained to use it. Very nice observation.
