Herschel 400 Objects

NGC 3593: Galaxy (Leo) RA: 11h 14.6m / DEC: +55° 40'.3
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder

Slew 2.6 degrees due south from 3.3 magnitude Chort, Theta (70) Leonis, to find this SO-type galaxy. NGC 3593 is presented in the sketch at left. The 82X view in my 10-inch Newt shows a 3'x1' cigar of nebulosity elongated nearly east-west. 5.3 magnitude 73 Leonis blazes away just inside the northern field boundary. 6.7 magnitude HD 97937 shines 19' east of NGC 3593. Four additional field stars complete the presentation.

NGC 3556-M108 NGC 3607 & NGC 3608
