Steve's Notes

===== NGC 5294 17.5" (5/11/02): very faint, extremely small, round, 15" diameter, requires averted vision. A mag 15.5 is just off the NW edge, 25" from center and requires careful viewing to separate from the faint glow of the galaxy. Several mag 10.5-11 stars are in the 20' field. Located 2.5 degrees NW of M101.
