Steve's Notes

===== NGC 3333 18" (3/17/07): faint, thin edge-on NNW-SSE, 0.6'x0.15'. A mag 15 star appears to be superimposed at the SSE end. Occasionally, there is a strong impresssion that a second very faint star is superimposed, though the second point is probably a faint stellar nucleus. Member of a group (Klemola 16 = LGG 213) along with NGC 3347, NGC 3354 and NGC 3358. NGC 3347 lies 40' SE.
