Considerably small, pretty faint, round. Very suddenly much
brighter to the middle, a 13th mag star lies almost on top
of the nucleus, giving it a double appearance. 3222 precedes
NGC's 3226 and 3227. [See several prior logs on these other
two galaxies. However, this is the first IAAC log of 3222!
Also see a following log for another nearby eg, NGC 3213.]
