Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 3266 = NGC 4353, which see. There is no problem with the IC identification -- at least there wasn't until CGCG put it, along with IC 3265 and NGC 4353 on the galaxy. See the other numbers for the short story.

NGC 4353 = IC 3266. Peters's position is not very good. That led Schwassmann to miss the NGC number when he picked up the galaxy in three of his 6-inch plate zones from Heidelburg. Still, Adelaide Ames caught the identity when she prepared her Virgo Cluster catalogue in 1930. However, CGCG muddied the picture again by calling the galaxy "I3265 = I3266 (= N4353?)". IC 3265, which see, is a star north-northwest of the galaxy.

The nucleus is quite faint; this has made it difficult for the centering algorithms of the automated surveys to find an accurate position. I have finally chosen the GSC-A position. That seems to pretty well represent the galaxy.
