x185 27'

NGC 600 Galaxy *
RA: 01h 33m 05.5s Dec: -07 18' 46"
Mag: 12.9 (B) S.B.: 14.4 B-V: +0.55 Size: 3.3'x2.8' Class: (R')SB(rs)d
P.A.: 51 Inclination: --- R.V.: +1867 Source: RC3 *

This is found SW by 10' from a mag 9*. Very, very LSB round eg that appears very diffuse. Easily passed over unless you know where it is. Best part of 2.5' diameter of very LSB uniformly, gossamer with no central brightening. No core visible. Very diffuse and difficult to know where the edges are.

Mag: 13.5 S.B.: --- B-V: --- Size: 1.3'x1.0' Class: SA0-
P.A.: 95 Inclination: --- R.V.: --- Source: RC3 *

This is a small and quite non-descript eg no worse than mod faint -- easy to see. No stars in immediate vicinity. Seems to be nearly 1' diameter and looks like a distant elliptical. Round, grows evenly and slightly to centre where there is a small faint stellaring.

-31 is a fairly non-descript little eg with a nice RA tri to its south made up by a mag 12 and 2x mag 13 *s that is 4' tall. Small, round 40-50" diameter growing evenly and mod to centre but doesn't seem to have any zones, core or nucleus.

-13 (seems out of RA order), from that RA tri, the bottom 2 *s that point E-W point straight at it about 7' E. A small and faint eg lens-shaped in PA 90 40" x 10" very LSB growing weakly to the axis nr centre but no apparent core or nucleus. -55 is 15' E

-55 is somewhat larger and has better S.B than the above two. IN about PA 45, sizable, 1.75'-2' x 30" lens shaped with tapered tips growing broadly and slightly to centre but doesn't seem to have any core zone or nucleus. Easy to see and mod bright

Re NGC 731 --

NGC 0757 = N0731 = MCG -02-05-073 = PGC 07118
01 54 56.1 -09 00 38

See observing notes for NGC 731.

Discovered by Ormond Stone (I). Corwin originally equated N757 with N755 (Stone's very rough position is 10' S of N755) but now feels N757 is a duplicate of N731. There is no discovery sketch but the sketch for N763 shows that N763 = N755, and this would imply that N757 = N731 using the relative separations. See NGCBUGS.- by Steve Gottlieb.

Re NGC 713:

NGC 0713 = MCG -02-05-075 = PGC 07161
01 55 21.5 -09 05 01
V = 14.0; Size 1.0x0.3; SB = 12.5; PA = 95d

17.5" (10/25/97): at 280x, appeared very faint, small, elongated 3:1 E-W,
0.7'x0.2', low even surface brightness. Located 7.7' SE of brighter N731.

17.5" (11/6/93): not found.

Leavenworth's position in list II is 3 tmin W of M-02-05-075 although his PA of 90 degrees matches. There is also a mag 15 star 2.2' NNW which is probably Leavenworth's "*14, np 2'." This galaxy is not identified as N713 in MCG (-02-05-075) but listed as N713 in ESGC. Reinmuth also mentions a galaxy 8' SE of N731 mE 90? which fits Leavenworth's description for N713. This galaxy is not catalogued in RC3.- by Steve

See observing notes for NGC 755.

Discovered by Stone (I). His description gives dimensions of 1.6x0.4 and PA = 65? which roughly matches N755. Corwin checked the discovery sketch and confirms N763 = N755. See NGCBUGS.- by Steve Gottlieb

NGC 762 is a fairly small eg but not hard to see -- only mod faint. Found to the S of a small bunch of faint *s that seem to stand out better on the DSS than in the ep 12th -4th mag. Small, slightly elong in PA 30, probably 50 x 40" growing broadly and slightly to centre and at centre there appears to be a faint stellaring that occasionally seems stellar.

MCG -1-6-7 is about 17' SE and is an easily passed-over and pretty small 30-40" diameter round patch of mist found on the long side (not hyp) of a RA tri made up by mag 11 & 12 *s. No apparent core, zones or nucleus.

-87 is a pretty ordinary and rather non-descript little eg that is pretty easy to see. Probably 1.25' diameter, round, growing from very indistinct and diffuse edges broadly and slightly to centre azonally. Occasionally there is a stellar nucleus at centre.

MCG -2-6-16 is almost exactly due N by about 11' and is a very small low SB patch of gossamer that seems to be round and about 30" diameter that grows weakly to centre without structure.

This eg sits just N of the mid-point between a couple of 13th mag *s that are aligned almost exactly N-S sep by about 5'. Pretty non-descript, round and about 40-50" diameter growing broadly and slightly to centre where there is a very small mod brighter zone that is almost a "spot".

These two galaxies lie N-S of each other with IC 208 to the N. Separated by about 5'. They have not quite between them but a little to the E a mag 14 *. -25 is a small and very elong eg in about PA 45, probably only 30" x 5" growing broadly and mod to the axis nr centre no apparent core or nucleus. A threshold mag * is just off the N flank nr centre.

IC 208 is a little larger, maybe 50", diameter and round of very to extremely LSB, just a little round smudge of gossamer, with no core nucleus or structure.
