Steve's Notes

===== NGC 1698 30" (11/6/10 - Coonabarabran, 264x): fairly bright, moderately large, irregular glow, 1' diameter. Roughly 10 stars are resolved in the outer halo giving a triangular shape. KMHK118 lies 1.6' SE. It appeared as a faint, small glow, 20" diameter with no resolution. IC 2105, a bright compact HII knot, lies 5.5' SSE, just beyond a mag 10 star.
