Steve's Notes

===== NGC 5411 17.5" (6/8/02): fairly faint, fairly small, elongated 4:3 NW-SE, 0.8'x0.6', very small brighter core. Situated within a striking field 10' ENE of mag 6.0 SAO 120228 (identified naked-eye). A neat string of four mag 11 stars oriented SW-NE trails from the bright star towards NGC 5411!
