Steve's Notes

===== NGC 3313 18" (4/10/04): fairly bright, large, round. Sharply concentrated with a small very bright core surrounded by a large, low surface brightness halo, ~1.5'-2' in diameter, which fades into the background. Outlying member of the Hydra I cluster and member of the group LGG 209 along with NGC 3331 and NGC 3335. On photos, this is a beautiful, face-on barred spiral with and inner ring and two main long spiral arms.
