Name: Arp89
Type: GLXGRP
Constellation: Cnc
Coordinates: 08h42m44.00s / +14°17'00.00"

Group Members:
MCG+2-22-6 (PGC24469) v14.2 mag 1.5x0.4'
NGC2648 (UGC4541, H3.49) v11.8 mag 3.2x1.1' (150°)
8" f/6, 150x, Bortle 4
Only the bright NGC2648 was evident with averted vision: Elongated, slight brightening toward the middle. Probably only the bright core area was visible.

8" f/6, 200x, Bortle 4-, SQM-L 21.0
Limiting magnitude in the target region at least 5.4 mag. I only observed the two brightest members.

NGC2783A: Already visible at 80x with averted vision. Appeared roundish, quite well condensed, rather small.

NGC2783B: Appeared more as an almost stellar brightening, in few moments also elongated. Permanently seen with averted vision but pretty faint.
