NGC 3277 -- Spiral Galaxy in Leo Minor
The spiral galaxy NGC 3277 was the faintest magnitude object that I
attempted during the excellent clear sky of April 10, 2019. At magnitude
11.7, even with exceptional sky transparency, this was pushing the visual
limits from my suburban backyard with the 6-inch refractor. Still I consider
it a win, just seeing the soft-glow of the 81,500,000-year-old light in the
eyepiece, without having to travel to a darker site.
