M105 was very bright, round, with very apparent stellar nucleus at any
magnification. 3384 was also bright, but was not very noticeable at
39X. Nearly round, with a slight elongation to it. 3389 was very
faint, and only at 166X was it apparent as a Galaxy. No nucleus
seen. One of my favorite "triples".
