Seeing: 7 <1-10 Seeing Scale (10 best)>
Moon presence: None - moon not in sky
Instrument: 10.1" f/4.5 Newtonian reflector
Magnification: 77x, 128x, 193x, 257x
Filter(s): None
Object(s): NGC 2460
Category: External galaxy.
Constellation: Cam
Data: mag 11.8  size 2.0' X 1.5'
Position: RA 07:57  DEC +60:21
193x: An oval halo elongated NE-SW which, during moments of steady seeing,
appears to be slightly mottled.  The halo brightens rather abruptly to a
fairly bright, stellar core.  The galaxy lies just to the NW of a line of
3 9th-11th magnitude field stars which span ~12' and point directly toward
the galaxy.  IC2209, plotted just to the SW of NGC2460, was suspected at
128x but could not be confirmed.
