NGC 5472 is a galaxy just where LdR's and Tempel's observations puts it.
However, it was not seen by Bigourdan which may have contributed to his
confusion about the field around NGC 5468 (see NGC 5465 and IC 974 for more).
17.5" (6/8/96): faint, small, elongated 2:1 SW-NE, 0.7'x0.3', small brighter core with faint extensions. A mag 13 star is 0.4' ESE and a mag 14 star 0.9' NW. Located 5.0' E of brighter NGC 5468.
