Steve's Notes

===== NGC 5449 18" (6/21/03): marginal object at 323x, but backing down to 215x a weak but definite glow was visible, perhaps 15"-20" diameter. Located 3.5' N of NGC 5457. 17.5" (6/7/97): extremely low contrast HII knot in M101. Highly suspected hazy spot 3.5' N of NGC 5457 but difficult to confirm.
