Steve's Notes

===== NGC 5273 17.5" (6/7/97): moderately bright, fairly large, elongated 4:3 N-S, ~2.5'x2.0'. Fairly low surface brightness halo contains a well-defined core gradually increasing to a stellar nucleus. Forms a pair with NGC 5276 3.3' SE. 8" (5/21/82): faint, small, small bright nucleus with a fainter outer halo.
