Steve's Notes

===== NGC 5409 17.5" (6/4/94): fairly faint, slightly elongated SW-NE, 1.2'x1.0'. Just a very weak even concentration to a slightly brighter core and an occasional faint stellar nucleus. Halo fades into background without a distinct edge. In a trio with CGCG 74-48 3.7' NE and NGC 5416 6.9' ESE and one or two others suspected. Member of NGC 5416 cluster = ZC 1400.4+0949.
