Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

The galaxy, in spite of its low surface brightness, does show up -- barely! -- on the print of Wolf's plate (see IC 2630). It is patchy and a bit asymmetric, with the brighter part west of the center of the outer isophotes. The position I've chosen is a compromise as the bar is not very bright; some may prefer the SDSS position, centered on a knot on the eastern edge of the brightest inner part of the galaxy.
