Object: Galaxies NGC 3185, -87, -90 and -93 Constell: LEO RA: 10h 18.1m (-90) Decl: +21° 50' Epoch: 2000 Mag: Size: Type: Observer: Jere Kahanpää Obs. place: Jyväskylä, Finland Date/Time: 22./23.4.1993, 00.50 Telescope: N 202/1219 Magn: 152x Filter: Field: 25' NE Lim.mag: 5.5m Background sky: 3-4 Seeing: 3 Weather: Brightness: Alt: Description: A nice compact group of (interacting) galaxies. The two bright ones are Ngc 3190 and -93. Ngc 3187 is a faint but compact object and Ngc 3185 is a low surface brightness spiral. NGC 3193 (10.9m (v), 3.0'x2.7', E2) : Round, moderately to strongly concentrated. Close to a mag. 10 star. Brightness 2 NGC 3190 (11.1m (v), 4.4'x1.6', SA(s)a pec sp ): Elliptical 1:2,5. Also quite concentrated but has no really bright core. PA about 110°. Brightness 2 NGC 3187 (13.4m (v), 3.0'x1.3', SB(s)cp ): Near -90. Easy to find as the brighter galaxy 'points' towards it's companion. Very small, slightly elliptical. Very little if any concentration. Brightness 5 NGC 3185 (12.2m (v), 2.4'x1.6', (R)SB(r)a ): Most difficult of 4 - partly due to problems with dew on eyepieces. Round, slightly concentrated. Brighness 4.
