Steve's Notes

===== NGC 2975 18" (4/14/12): extremely faint and small, round, 10" diameter. Required averted vision and could only hold for brief periods. There is a mag 15.5 star 35" NE that also occasionally popped and it was a bit confusing to disguish the two objects at 250x as they were about the same magnitude. A couple of times the galaxy and star both popped simultaneously.
