NGC3190; 12.0v;4.5' x 1.7'; PA-125; Class Sb; RA 10:18.1, DEC +21:49.
203X - A farily bright thin oval evenly illuminated halo and a large moderatly
bright soft core. No other features detected. It is ealilly seen with direct
NGC3193; 10.9v; 2.5' x 2.5'; Class EO; RA 10:18.4, DEC +21:49.
203X - Faint fuzzy appears round with some soft brightning toward the center.
It looks like a small unresolved Globular cluster. It is moderately difficult
with direct vision, but readily seen with averted vision.
NGC3185; 12.2v; 2.0' x 1.2'; PA-130; Class SBb; RA 10:17.7, DEC +21:41.
203X - Thin fuzzy oval. It appears parallel to NGC3190. The halo is faint and
illdefined with a much brighter core. No other features detected. It is easy
NGC3187; 13.4v; 3.5' x 1.5'; Class SBcp; RA 10:17.9, DEC +21:53.
117X - Not detected.
203X - Just a very thin, faint sliver of light with a faint star at it's east
end. I would miss NGC3187 if not knowing it was ther from previously observing
it through Eric Honeycutt's 22" Starmaster.
314X I can see the faint nearby star, but I am not sure that I am seeing
