Arp 162 (GLX)

DSS
Image source: DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: NGC3414, UGC5959, Arp162, H2.362
Type: GLX
Constellation: LMi
Coordinates: 10h51m16.24s / +27°58'29.88"
Brightness / Size: v11.0 mag / 3.6x3.1'
120mm f/5, 48x, Bortle 6-, NELM 5.0, SQM-L 19.2
At 48x and 66x oval, slightly condensed with distinct nucleus. Overall pretty faint.

MODERATE
8" f/6, 80x, Bortle 4-, SQM-L 20.9
At 37x the core was evident & rather compact with averted vision, surrounded by a faint halo. At 80x quite bright, compact, non-stellar core with evenly bright and round halo. Rather high surface brightness.

Arp 206 (GLXGRP)

DSS
Image source: DSS I - 20×20'
Name: Arp206
Type: GLXGRP
Constellation: LMi
Coordinates: 10h52m27.00s / +36°38'00.00"

Group Members:
NGC3432 (UGC5986, H1.172) v11.3 mag 6.6x1.6' (43°)
UGC5983 b17.0 mag 1.2x1.0' (88°)
The extremely faint companion UGC5983 is located southwest of NGC3432.

120mm f/5, 23x, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.3
NGC3432: Already conspicuous at 23x, elongated (NE-SW), almost evenly bright without distinct core. At 48x a fainter field star appeared at the southwestern end.

Arp 270 (GLXGRP)

DSS
Image source: DSS II (blue) - 8×8'
Name: Arp270
Type: GLXGRP
Constellation: LMi
Coordinates: 10h49m53.00s / +32°59'00.00"

Group Members:
NGC3395 (UGC5931, H1.116) v11.8 mag 1.7x0.9' (50°)
NGC3396 (UGC5935, H1.117) v12.0 mag 2.9x0.9' (105°)
Bright Arp group of two interacting galaxies.

8" f/6, 80x, Bortle 4, NELM 6.0, SQM-L 21.0
At 37x both galaxies appeared together slightly elongated. From 80x well separated, but touching each other. NGC3395 appears brighter & larger than NGC3396. Both appeared oval, evenly bright and evident with averted vision. Further details were not seen.
