NGC/IC Objects

NGC 4383: Peculiar Galaxy (Coma Berenices) RA: 12h 25.4m / DEC: +16° 28'.2
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder

This faint little stinker gets ignored in favor of nearby M100, which lies just 53' to the southwest. Its appearance in my 10-inch is captured in the sketch at left, drawn at 129X. NGC 4383 is just north of center. This 12.2 magnitude peculiar galaxy ranges over a 2'x1'.5 area and features a stellaring at the core. Eleven field stars complete the view. The fine galaxy pair, NGC 4340 and NGC 4350, lie just beyond the field boundary to the northwest.
