Steve's Notes

===== NGC 5260 17.5" (6/14/96): faint, moderately large, round, 1.5' diameter, very weak concentration with a low surface brightness. A mag 11 star is just off the following side 1.1' from center. This star is part of a distinctive string of stars running N-S including two mag 13 stars to north and several brighter stars to the south.
