Description: A field of 5 galaxies. The only bright one is NGC
3832 (11.9m(x),2-4'x1.9',E2+:,Br3): Round or somewhat elliptical
N-S. 

A small brightening was visible within the halo of -32, about
30'' SW of the nucleus. Almost stellar, mag. 14,5. I think this
is NGC 3831 (15.0m(p),1.4',E0,Br5).

The 2nd brightest object in this field is NGC 2825
(15.3m(p),1.0x'0.3',S(s)ap? sp,Br5): About 5' W of -32. Very
small (25''), round, somewhat concentrated. 

Between the 2 brightest galaxies (closer to -32) is NGC 2830
(15.3m(p), 1.4'x0.3',SB0? sp,Br5):  Only suspected. Very eS
(15''), round, barely visible with averted vision, mag. 15.

The last galaxy near the SE edge of the field is NGC 2839
(15.2m(p), E?, Br5): This was the last to be seen due to its
position far from the center. Round, diam. 30'', not
contentrated disk. 

NGC 2826 was not seen.
