Steve's Notes

===== NGC 2937 48" (2/20/12): bright, fairly small, oval 3:2 SSW-NNE, 0.5'x0.25', high surface brightness, very small intense nucleus. Forms a close pair with highly disrupted NGC 2936 with the cores of the galaxies separated by less than 1'. 17.5" (3/25/95): faint, very small, round. Appears as a fairly high surface brightness "knot" located just off the south edge of NGC 2936. No outer halo visible.
