Observing Notes

Harold Corwin

IC 3911 is two galaxies whose images are merged on the original Bruce 16-inch refractor plate which Wolf took and examined. The object is marked on the contact print of that original plate where it appears to be single. The second galaxy appears to be very compact, perhaps even being a star, on the original DSS. However, the SDSS shows it to be definitely a galaxy with a very faint, but extended and slightly distorted corona. The two must form an interacting pair.
