Steve's Notes

===== NGC 5483 22" (6/28/06 - Hawaii): at 200x this face-on spiral appeared moderately bright, moderately large, elongated 4:3 ~N-S, ~2.6'x1.8', broad concentration. Nestled among a group of faint stars with a mag 14-15 star just off the NE side and another at the SW edge of the halo. A mag 9.5 star with a close, mag 11.8 companion at 3" separation lies 4' E. 12.5" (6/24/06 - Haleakala Crater): at 176x appeared faint, fairly large, slightly elongated ~2.5'x2.2', broad weak concentration but no well defined core. Increases in size with averted vision so the outer halo gradually fades. Situated in a rich star field with a mag 9.5 star 4' E. Located 19' NE of mag 6.2 HD 123445.
