NGC 3377: Elliptical Galaxy (Leo) RA: 10h 47.7m / DEC: +13° 59'.0
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder

This is one among hundreds of bright galaxies in the constellation, Leo. M105 is just a short 1.4-degree slew due south. 5.5 magnitude 52 Leonis shines 23' to the northwest. My sketch presents NGC 3377 as he appears in the 10-inch Starfinder Newtonian at 82X. This 10.3 magnitude elliptical covers a 2'x1' area. Its axis of elongation is aligned north-south. 8.2 magnitude HD 93542 can be seen 14'.5 to the north. Another eight field stars complete the view.
