Sentinel Star Gaze 99 - Big Success
I move on to a galaxy group in Antlia, Abell 4712. Even this
group of distant galaxies that is only 10 degrees above the
horizon shows six galaxies that are pretty easy seen at 150X.
[I was unable to find a catalog entry for A4712 (presumably
from the expanded Southern catalog published in the 1970s?),
so I have only taken a stab at its position and data. Steve,
can you confirm or correct this data for me? -Lew Gramer]
