Re:NGC 2518
Discovered by Lohse, and noted in the N. G. C. as "Two neb, F, L, R, gbM,
{DELTA}{alpha} = 42s". These are small and inconspicuous objects, and scarcely
warrant the N. G. C. description. The s.p. object is an exceedingly faint spiral
perhaps 1' long; the n.f. nebula is very small and faint, with an almost stellar
nucleus; no spiral structure discernible. 4 s.n. A fine, nearly round spiral
1.5' in diameter; moderately bright. It has a sharp stellar nucleus; the whorls
are rather open, and show a number of almost stellar condensations. 22 s.n.
