NGC/IC Objects

NGC 4405: Galaxy (Coma Berenices) RA: 12h 26.1m / DEC: +16° 10'.8
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder

The sketch at left presents NGC 4405 as it appears in my 10-inch Starfinder at 129X. The galaxy is centered in the field, aligned just about north-south and spans a 2'x1' area. NGC 4405 has an integrated visual magnitude of about 12.2, which may seem faint. However, its surface brightness falls in at a relatively bright 21.7 magnitude per square arc second. You'll find this guppy swimming with sharks. M100 resides about 51' to the southwest.
