IC 2500 (= PGC 27748)
Discovered (Feb 27, 1897) by
Guillaume Bigourdan (399)
A magnitude 14.3 spiral galaxy (type SB(r)ab?) in Leo Minor (RA 09 42 23.3, Dec +36 20 57)
Based on a recessional velocity of 6625 km/sec, IC 2500 is about 310 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 1.25 by 0.4 arcmin, it is about 110 thousand light years across.
