NGC/IC Project Restoration Effort
(This is a very very beta version)
Location and Magnitude
Right Ascension: 14:3:28.0
Year of discovery: 1882
Discovery aperture: 11.0
Summary description: 2 near II 310, one in line with II 309 and II 310
NGC 5428, NGC 5429, NGC 5432, and NGC 5435 are multiple stars (N5432 is a
triple, the others are double) north and east of the interacting pair NGC 5426
and NGC 5427. As with many other of the "nebulae" which were found by Tempel
near brighter nebulae, these can be identified by his published descriptions,
or by the positions that he later sent to Dreyer.
In this case, the identities of N5432 and N5435 are clear from the
descriptions and positions, N5428 is pretty clear from the description ("...
in line with N5426 and N5427"), and N5429 merely probable from its similarity
to the others.
18" (4/30/11): this is a mag 14.7 star on line to the north of the galaxy pair NGC 5426 and NGC 5427 (Arp 271). Situated 2.9' NNE of the center of NGC 5427. Tempel made several false sightings (also NGC 5429, NGC 5432 and NGC 5435) around the pair of galaxies.
