Steve's Notes

===== NGC 2923 17.5" (4/6/02): extremely faint, very small, round, 20" diameter. Required averted to glimpse intermittently once exact position identified. Surprisingly faint and small for a mag 15.2z galaxy. Located at the western edge of a faint group of galaxies (brightest member NGC 2943).
