Object name: NGC3184
Designation(s): NGC3184, NGC3181, NGC3180,
NGC 3184 is a classic face on spiral galaxy in southern Ursa Major near one of the bears back feet. It made my list as it is one of the original Herschel 400 objects that I'm slowly working on. Also, it is a neat spiral that is overlooked by most imagers. William Herschel discovered it on the night of March 18, 1787. My visual notes with my 10" f/5 scope on May 4, 1984 at 10:15 CDT reads: Beautiful face on spiral, round with much arm detail. How did Messier miss this one? The nucleus is ill-defined. Hard to understand how this was a difficult object in an 8" scope." This refers apparently to the preliminary text I had of the list in which the person making the comments used an 8" scope and found this a difficult object. I no longer have that text. I went on to add: "Was he viewing from Central Park in NYC?."
