IC 2850 (= PGC 35301)
Discovered (Mar 27, 1906) by
Max Wolf (7-222)
A magnitude 14.4 spiral galaxy (type SBb?) in Leo (RA 11 28 13.0, Dec +09 03 46)
Based on a recessional velocity of 6300 km/sec, IC 2850 is about 295 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 0.7 by 0.3 arcmins, it is about 60 thousand light years across.
