IC 2250 (= PGC 1690833)
Discovered (Jan 9, 1901) by
Max Wolf (I-16)
A magnitude 16.5 spiral galaxy (type SBd? pec) in Cancer (RA 08 16 32.3, Dec +23 37 57)
Based on a recessional velocity of 3945 km/sec, IC 2250 is about 185 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 0.4 by 0.3 arcmin, it is about 20 thousand light years across. (Note: Searching for IC 2250 in Wikisky shows the correct object, but showing only its PGC listing.)
