Corwin's Notes

===== NGC 2963. JH's RA is in error by -1 minute of time, an error shared by its neighboring galaxy (the brighter of a pair), NGC 2957 (which see).

Steve's Notes

===== NGC 2963 17.5" (4/4/92): fairly faint, fairly small, elongated 3:2 NNW-SSE, broadly concentrated halo, faint extensions. A wide double star mag 11/13 is 1.8' S of center (30" separation in PA 45). Forms a pair with NGC 2957 3' WNW.
