Object name: IC4215
This field is in eastern Coma Berenices. Why I put it on the to-do list is lost. It's been on the list now over 10 years at a low priority. I finally got tired and those on the list for 10 or more years got their priorities bumped up so are sometimes taken now. But back then I was lax as to why I put something on the list. This one is a total mystery. Was it IC 4215 at 910 million light-years. It has a faint dust are in the core region that doesn't extend very far from the core. Though I seem to have picked up more of it than Sloan did. It is a rather red and dead spiral. It was discovered by Stephane Javelle on June 15, 1895. I measure it at just a bit under 100,000 light-years in size though Seligman siting a somewhat smaller angular size and putting it 10 million light-years closer says 85,000 light-years.
