|NGC 3265: Elliptical Galaxy (Leo Minor) RA: 10h 31.1m / DEC: +28° 47'.8|
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder
The sketch at left records a 190X view in my 10-inch Starfinder Newtonian. NGC 3265 is centered. A 1' diameter diffuse glow encases a stellar appearing core region. The elliptical galaxy has a photographic magnitude of 13.9, which suggests a visual brightness in the 13.0 magnitude range. Thirteed stars frame the view, most tipping the scale at around 13th magnitude. You'll find NGC 3265 along the southern border of Leo Minor. The K2 variable, ADS 3936, is just 20' to the southeast. Look for NGC 3277 about half a degree to the southwest.
