Brightness: Alt: 55° Description: 40x: NGC 2964 and -68 visible as small round glows. NGC 2964 (11.2m (v), 2.9'x1.8', SAB(r)bc:, Br3): Easy. Elliptical, 2'x1.4'. Moderately but broadly concentrated. An eF star was visible between the galaxy and a mag. 10 star S of it. NGC 2968 (11.7m (v), 2,3'x1,6', I0, Br3): 1,2'x1,2'. Round, more compact than -53 and seems to be about as bright. NGC 2970 (13.6m (v), 0.7'x0.5', E1:, Br4): 0.5'x0.5'. Much fainter than the two main galaxies. Strongly concentrated. Shape undeterminate. Faintly visible without averted vision.
