Steve's Notes

===== NGC 3391 17.5" (4/22/95): fairly faint, fairly small, elongated 3:2 SW-NE although appears irregular, broad weak concentration. A mag 14.5 star is at the NE tip (about 15" from center) and an extremely faint mag 15.5+ star is attached at the west end. Lies 2.7' NW of a mag 10 star.
