NGC/IC Objects

NGC 3910: Galaxy (Leo) RA: 11h 50.0m / DEC: +21° 20'.0
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder

Located just across the border from Coma Berenices in eastern Leo, NGC 3910 is presented in the sketch at left. Based on the view in my 10-inch Starfinder Newtonian at a magnification of 82X, the drawing shows a 60" diameter glow with a 12.2 magnitude GSC star embedded within the northwestern edge. NGC 3910 is classified as a borderline elliptical galaxy with a 13.8 photographic magnitude. This suggests a visual magnitude in the range of 13.0. 9.6 magnitude HD 102808 is shown about 7' to the northeast. Eleven assorted field stars complete the rendering. 4.5 magnitude 93 Leonis makes an excellent jumping off point for a star hop.
