Steve's Notes

===== NGC 3349 17.5" (4/9/94): very faint, very small, round, low surface brightness. Located 5.3' W of brighter NGC 3356. An extremely faint mag 15 "star" is just off the SE edge [38" SE of center]. On the POSS this "star" is actually an extremely compact companion galaxy (just nonstellar) which has very faint disrupted arms.
