Constellation: Crv
Data: mag 13 & 13,9magv  size 
Position: RA :  DEC :
13,9 and 13magv, 0.9x0.5 and 1.1x0.9. NGC4727 is the brighter and larger of 
the close pair. At 342x it shows a slight brightening towards the center but, 
no nucleus or bright core. It appears slightly oval and about 1 in size. Its 
neighbor 4724 is oval and has a fairly high SB. I could see a faint stellar 
nucleus in its middle that is surrounded by the bright  core and a small faint 
halo. Size about 0.5x0.7. Nice looking pair as the two components are very 
different in appearance and the centers are only 50" apart!
