Steve's Notes

===== NGC 3390 18" (4/9/05): fairly faint, moderately large, edge-on, at least 7:2 N-S, ~2'x0.5', broad weak concentration. A faint star is at the north tip and a similar star is just beyond the southern extension. Located 9.4' NNW of mag 5.9 SAO HD 93657. The DSS image is similar to NGC 891 with a thin equatorial dust lane and bulging core.
