Data: mag 12.3 size 1.8'

Small and rather faint, it showed a tiny stellar nucleus, although it was
visible with direct vision it was nonetheless quite a difficult object to get
a good look at. It has, as a neighbor, the edge on spiral NGC 3592 but i was
unable to catch even a glimpse of it, but with a magnitude of 13.7 and a SB of
14.8 it's not suprising.
