Object: Galaxy IC 239 Constell: And RA: 02h 36.5m Decl: +38° 58' Epoch: 2000 Mag: 11.1m (v) Size: 4.6'x4.2' Type: SAB(rs)cd Observer: Jere Kahanpää Obs. place: Harola, Finland Date/Time: 3./4.1.1997, 19.15 Telescope: N 205/1000 Magn: 133x Filter: Field: 22' NE Lim.mag: 6.0m Background sky: 2 Seeing: 3 Weather: -11 °C, no Moon. Brightness: 5 Alt: 65° Description: A very faint galaxy. Only the core is 'easy', the disk is next to impossible. The first think which draws attention to this area is a group of several 14-15 mag stars in front of the galaxy (at least they are stellar of POSS I). The galaxy is extremely diffuse and round. The core might be elliptical W-E. Size 2,5'x2'.
