Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 3019 is one of the Virgo Cluster's low-surface-brightness "dwarf" spheroidal galaxies. It has no obvious nucleus, but the various automated surveys have narrowed the position down very well anyway.

There are many other similar galaxies in the Virgo Cluster that were picked up on the early plates at Heidelberg and Harvard. In general, the recent surveys have positions that are acceptable for the images. Where a galaxy might be more difficult to pin down, I've generally listed all the automated positions, plus others that I can find or determine, so that you can see why I have chosen a particular position.
