Corwin's Notes

===== NGC 5470. The nucleus is hidden in this galaxy seen almost exactly edgewise to our line of sight. The position is therefore more uncertain than usual.

Steve's Notes

===== NGC 5470 17.5" (5/10/91): very faint, moderately large, edge-on 6:1 WSW-ENE, low surface brightness, weak concentration but no nucleus, 2.0'x0.3'. An easy double star mag 10/11 at 21" separation located 4.5' S.
