NGC3605; 12.3v; 1.2' x 0.6'; PA=17* RA 11:16.8, DEC +18:01.
117X - Looks like a fuzzy star, but slightly elongated.
Bright, but small
NGC3607; 9.9v; 4.5' x 4.0'; PA=120*; RA 11:16.9, DEC +18:03.
117X - Near the center of FOV. Almost round faint fuzzy with a bright
core and a stellar nucleus.
203X - NGC3607 looks like a slightly oval unresolved globular cluster
except the central star.
NGC3608; 10.8v; 2.7' x 2.3'; PA=75*; RA 11:17.0, DEC +18:09
117X - Appears as a faint fuzzy spot, slightly brighter in the middle.
203X - A faint oblate oval with a fairly bright core and a stellar
nucleus. The stellar nucleus may be a foreground star as it appears to
me to be slightly displaced from the center toward the south.
