On this page I collect my observations of the spiral galaxy NGC 3628 in the constellation Leo, which is seen from the edge.

 

Introduction

The spiral galaxy NGC 3628 in the constellation Leo is forms a conspicuous group with M 65 and M 66 (Leo Triplet) and is seen from the edge; it is the faintest of the three galaxies in the triplet. The Leo Triplet cannot be observed as a whole in the eVscope (about 1.2° distance to the other two galaxies).

Size: 8' x 2' (Stoyan)
