Steve's Notes

===== NGC 3343 18" (3/30/05): fairly faint, small, slightly elongated SW-NE, 0.7'x0.5'. Fairly sharp concentration with a very small 15" bright core which increases to a stellar nucleus. Forms the vertex of a right angle with a 23" pair of mag 10.5/11.5 stars situated 4.5' NE and a mag 10.5 star 4' WNW. NGC 3348 lies 30' S and NGC 3403 is 40' NE.
