Notes: Another field of objects that is a little small for my focal length (1000mm) ... This Hickson galaxy group is centered on NGC 3190, and includes NGC 3193 (UGC 5562) (2'x2', mag 11.8b, Cl: E2) to the NE (upper left), NGC 3187 (UGC 5556) (3.6'x1.6', mag 13.4v, Cl: SB(s)c pec) to the NW (upper right) and NGC 3185 (UGC 5554) (2.3'x1.5', mag 13.0b, Cl: (R)SB(r)a) to the SSW (lower right).

Contemporary Visual Observation(s) for NGC 3187

NGC 3187 = UGC 05556 = MCG +04-24-025 = CGCG 123-036 = Arp 316 = VV 307 = HCG 
44d = PGC 30068
10 17 47.8 +21 52 25
V = 13.4;  Size 3.0x1.3;  SB = 14.7

17.5": faint, small, edge-on NW-SE.  A mag 14 star is off the SW side 1.1' from 
center and a similar star is 1.3' SSE.  Unusual as the major axis is exactly 
collinear with the brighter edge-on N3190 4.9' SE.  Located 6.3' SSW of mag 7.8 
SAO 81276 and 8.8' WSW of N3193.

13": very faint, elongated NW-SE.  Located 5' NW N3190.  A mag 8 star 6' NNE 
detracts.

8": not seen.

V = 12.2;  Size 2.3x1.6;  SB = 13.4;  PA = 130d

17.5": fairly faint, increases to a brighter core, diffuse halo elongated NW-SE.  
A mag 14 star is just off the west edge 0.7' from center and a similar star is 
1.4' SW of center.  Member of the N3190 group = HCG 44.

13": fairly faint, gradually brighter core.

8": faint, fairly small, elongated.
