Description:
Pretty large, considerably faint, oval N/S. Very gradually
brightens to the middle. Fainter of 2 with NGC 3356, quite a
bit larger than 3356 but about half as bright. [See previous
log of NGC 3356. NOTE: No mention is made by the observer of
the third member of this galaxy trio, NGC 3362. Since NGC3349
is cataloged as being SMALLER than NGC3356 rather than larger,
could this log actually be an observation of NGC3356? -ed.]
