254X- NGC1400 appears as a small round diffuse halo with a bright core about
1/3 the size of the halo. Looks like an unresolved Globular Cluster.
(Galaxy; SAO; 10.9p; RA:03:39.5; DEC:(-)18:41.3)
254X- NGC1407 appears as a little larger version of NGC1400, but with slightly less surface brightness?
(Galaxy; E0; 10.70p; RA:03:34.2; DEC:(-)18:34.8)
254X- NGC1393as a dim featurless oval with direct vision. Averted vision does not help.
