"Variegated" is how the Observer's Guide describes this fascinating galaxy in Coma Berenicies. I'll put it another way: this one looks like it's exploding right in front of your face! At 10th magnitude, it's fairly obvious and under dark transparent skies with a decent size scope, you'll see a lot of detail:
