Object name: NGC3655
NGC 3655 is a near face-on spiral in the hindquarters of Leo the Lion about 83 to 99 million light-years from us. Though I found distances ranging from 45 to 125 million light-years. Determining distance to galaxies isn't easy. It was discovered by William Herschel on December 30, 1783. It is in the original H 400 program. My log from April 16, 1985 with my 10" f/5 on a humidity hurt night at 100x reads: "Very small, faint, evenly bright, round, puffball of a galaxy. It looks much like a planetary nebula without a central star. About 1' in diameter. Note the preliminary guide says it is in Ursa Major which is not correct." The galaxy has a foreground star east of the nucleus that in a low-resolution image fooled me into thinking it had a double core according to my notes of why I imaged it. The other reason being it is one of the H400 galaxies I can reach from my latitude but the mistaken double core likely pushed it higher in priority.
