Corwin's Notes

===== NGC 5217. See IC 897 for a curious footnote to the observations of this galaxy.

Steve's Notes

===== NGC 5217 17.5" (5/30/92): fairly faint, fairly small, round, evenly concentrated down to a small bright core. Forms a pair with IC 897 3.2' ESE. The companion appeared extremely faint, very small. I could only glimpse this object for moments with averted vision but it appeared very elongated 3:1 SW-NE and extremely thin.
