Data: mag 11.6/12.9  size 42" x 36"/42"
Position: RA :  DEC :
Could not be seen at 22x or 30x.  A very dim puff of elongated smoke at 73x.
 Very small.  This is probably only NGC 2672.  The galaxy seems to be touching 
the border of a group of 4 stars forming a parallelogram: GSC 1396:1530, GSC 
1396:1432, GSC 1396:2450 and GSC 1396:1722.  The galaxy lies closest to star 
GSC 1396:1432.  110x revealed a definite elongated shape with averted vision 
and brightening toward the center.  Dimmer at 146x and too dim at 176x.  I 
donít think I saw NGC 2673.
