IC 3300 (= 40459)
Discovered (Mar 23, 1903) by
Max Wolf (4-96)
A 15th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type Scd?) in Coma Berenices (RA 12 25 04.8, Dec +25 57 24)
Based on a recessional velocity of 6670 km/sec, IC 3300 is about 310 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 1.0 by 0.3 arcmin, it is about 90 thousand light years across.

IC 3301 (=
IC 3307 = PGC 40491)
Discovered (May 7, 1904) by Royal Frost (896) (and later listed as IC 3307)
Discovered (May 10, 1904) by Royal Frost (894) (and later listed as IC 3301)
A 15th-magnitude elliptical galaxy (type dE1) in Coma Berenices (RA 12 25 17.6, Dec +14 10 19)
Per Corwin, the two IC numbers assigned to this object are due to Frost having taken two photographic plates of the region a few days apart, and slightly mismeasured the position of the object on each plate. There is only one object that Frost could have seen in the region, and it lies between his two measurements, so there is no doubt of the identity or of the equality of the two entries (Ames was the first to notice the identity, as she used the original plates for her Virgo Cluster catalog). Based on a recessional velocity of 640 km/sec, IC 3301 is about 30 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 0.6 by 0.5 arcmin, it is only about 5 thousand light years across, hence its designation as a dwarf elliptical. IC 3301 is listed as a member (VCC 790) of the Virgo Cluster. If it really is a member of the Cluster it is somewhat further away and a little larger, but still a dwarf galaxy.

IC 3310
Recorded (Apr 1, 1894) by
Guillaume Bigourdan (297)
A 15th-magnitude star in Coma Berenices (RA 12 25 55.3, Dec +15 40 49)
On the northwestern edge of NGC 4396. Per Corwin, Bigourdan used an incorrect position for his comparison star, which of course yielded an incorrect position for his #297; if the correct position for the star is used, the IC position falls right on the foreground star listed above.

IC 3318
Recorded (Feb 23, 1900) by
Arnold Schwassmann
An 11th-magnitude star in Virgo (RA 12 25 50.0, Dec +09 45 46)
Per Dreyer, IC 3318 (Schwassmann #139, 1860 RA 12 18 43, NPD 79 27.6) is "pretty bright, small, = 10.5 magnitude star". The position precesses to RA 12 25 50.0, Dec +09 45 51, practically on top of the star listed above, so the identification is certain.

IC 3319 (perhaps =
IC 3320)
Recorded (Feb 23, 1900) by Arnold Schwassmann
A nonexistent object in Virgo (RA 12 25 50.8, Dec +10 23 27)
or an erroneous measurement of IC 3320 (= NGC 4390)
Per Dreyer, IC 3319 (Schwassmann #140, 1860 RA 12 18 44, NPD 78 50.0) is "pretty faint, pretty small". The position precesses to RA 12 25 50.8, Dec +10 23 27, but there is nothing there save for NGC 4390, which lies 4 arcmin to the north. Such a large error would be unusual for Schwassmann, so this probably represents a nonexistent object; but per Corwin Schwassmann may have made a reduction error in an otherwise identical observation of his #155, so there is a possibility that it is a duplicate of IC 3320 (on the basis of its nearly identical description). In either case this IC entry would serve no useful purpose, so it is usually ignored.

IC 3320 (=
NGC 4390 = PGC 40597, and perhaps = IC 3319)
Discovered (Mar 15, 1784) by William Herschel (and later listed as NGC 4390)
Discovered (Sep 6, 1900) by Arnold Schwassmann (and later listed as IC 3320)
A 13th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SAB(s)c?) in Virgo (RA 12 25 50.5, Dec +10 27 32)
Per Dreyer, IC 3320 (Schwassmann #155, 1860 RA 12 18 44, NPD 78 46.0) is "pretty faint, pretty small, irregular figure, faint nucleus". The position precesses to RA 12 25 50.8, Dec +10 27 27, right on the galaxy, so the identification is certain. For a discussion of the duplicate entry (and anything else ) see NGC 4390.

IC 3321 (= SDSS J122546.18+260456.9)
Discovered (Mar 23, 1903) by
Max Wolf (4-106)
A 15th-magnitude lenticular galaxy (type S0) in Coma Berenices (RA 12 25 46.2, Dec +26 04 57)

A 14th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SAB(s)cd?) in Virgo (RA 12 25 54.1, Dec +07 33 17)

IC 3323
Recorded (Mar 23, 1903) by
Max Wolf
A 16th-magnitude star in Coma Berenices (RA 12 25 48.2, Dec +27 32 36)
Per Dreyer, IC 3323 (Wolf list IV #107, 1860 RA 12 18 48, NPD 61 40.9) is "considerably faint, very small, round, brighter middle, nebulous star attached". The position precesses to RA 12 25 48.6, Dec +27 32 33, just east of the star listed above (a foreground star superimposed on NGC 4393, which see for images), so the identity is reasonably certain. Per Corwin, this and IC 3329 (a star-forming region in NGC 4393) are listed in the CGCG as duplicates of NGC 4393, but Wolf's positions are too accurate for that to be the case. Still, the reader is warned that as a result they may run across references replicating that error.

IC 3324 (= SDSS J122549.16+264423.6 plus a foreground star)
Discovered (Mar 23, 1903) by
Max Wolf
A 16th-magnitude compact galaxy (type C?) in Coma Berenices (RA 12 25 49.2, Dec +26 44 24)
and a 16th-magnitude star at RA 12 25 48.9, Dec +26 44 19)
Per Dreyer, IC 3324 (Wolf list IV #108, 1860 RA 12 18 49, NPD 62 29.1) is "considerably faint, very small, round, brighter middle, spiral". The position precesses to RA 12 25 50.0, Dec +26 44 21, just east of a faint galaxy and star (often mistaken as a pair of faint stars in low-resolution images), whose combined image is undoubtedly what Wolf recorded (his description is typical for a faint object accompanied by a fainter star). Although there is no doubt that Wolf's #108 (and therefore IC 3324) is the galaxy and its accompanying star it is often listed as a pair of faint stars, as the galaxy is too small to be obviously non-stellar in typical images of the region. Apparent size about 0.2 by 0.2 arcmin. Vr 7195 km/sec.

IC 3329
Discovered (Mar 23, 1903) by
Max Wolf
A star-forming region in Coma Berenices (RA 12 25 55.9, Dec +27 33 52)
Per Dreyer, IC 3329 (Wolf list IV #112, 1860 RA 12 18 56, NPD 61 39.7) is "very faint, small, irregular figure, attached to (NGC) 4393". The position precesses to RA 12 25 56.6, Dec +27 33 45, just southeast of the star-forming region listed above, which is part of NGC 4393 (which see for images), so the identification is reasonably certain. Per Corwin, this and IC 3323 (a foreground star superimposed on NGC 4393) are listed in the CGCG as duplicates of NGC 4393, but Wolf's positions are too accurate for that to be the case. Still, the reader is warned that as a result they may run across references replicating that error.

IC 3332 (= SDSS J122605.42+251644.3 plus a foreground star)
Discovered (Mar 23, 1903) by
Max Wolf
A 17th-magnitude compact galaxy (type C?) in Coma Berenices (RA 12 26 05.4, Dec +25 16 44)
plus a 17th-magnitude star at RA 12 26 05.2, Dec +25 16 47
Per Dreyer, IC 3332 (Wolf list IV #113, 1860 RA 12 19 04, NPD 63 56.7) is "very faint, very small, irregular figure, nuclear". The position precesses to RA RA 12 26 05.4, Dec +25 16 45, right on the galaxy listed above, so the identity is certain. However, given the small size of the galaxy and Wolf's reference to an irregular figure, the IC object must represent both the galaxy and its foreground stellar companion. The galaxy has an apparent size of 0.1 by 0.1 arcmin.

A 14th-magnitude star in Virgo (RA 12 26 08.9, Dec +13 07 58)
Per Dreyer, IC 3333 (Schwassmann #248, 1860 RA 12 19 04, NPD 76 05.4) is "very faint, very small, possibly a 14th magnitude star". The position precesses to RA 12 26 09.8, Dec +13 08 03, just northeast of a 14th-magnitude star that, given the description, must be IC 3333. (The star lies just north of NGC 4402, which see for images.)

IC 3334 (= SDSS J122609.52+282757.0)
Discovered (Mar 23, 1903) by
Max Wolf (4-114)
A 16th-magnitude elliptical galaxy (type dE1?) in Coma Berenices (RA 12 26 09.5, Dec +28 27 57)
Apparent size 0.5 by 0.45 arcmin. (Listed in NED as PGC 4326375, but no such designation exists, and no PGC object corresponds to IC 3334.)

IC 3335 (= SDSS J122619.12+260745.5)
Discovered (Mar 23, 1903) by
Max Wolf
A 17th-magnitude lenticular galaxy (type S0?) in Coma Berenices (RA 12 26 19.0, Dec +26 07 47)
Per Dreyer, IC 3335 (Wolf list IV #116, 1860 RA 12 19 19, NPD 63 05.7) is "extremely faint, very small, round, brighter middle, suspected nebulosity". The position precesses to RA 12 26 20.0, Dec +26 07 45, just east of the galaxy listed above. Per Corwin, the brighter galaxy (PGC 3089429) to the northeast is sometimes taken for IC 3335, but on a print of Wolf's plate it appears stellar, so even if Wolf's position didn't point at the fainter galaxy, the brighter one wouldn't be a suitable candidate for the IC object; however, since it is sometimes mistaken for IC 3335, it is discussed immediately below. Apparent size 0.25 by 0.15 arcmin.

Not an IC object but listed here since sometimes mistakenly taken as IC 3335
A 15th-magnitude lenticular galaxy (type S0?) in Coma Berenices (RA 12 26 20.75, Dec +26 08 37.6)
As noted above, sometimes mistaken for IC 3335, which see for images. Based on a recessional velocity of 9630 km/sec, PGC 3089429 is about 450 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 0.3 by 0.2 arcmin, it is about 40 thousand light years across.

IC 3339 (= PGC 40695 =
NGC 4411 = "NGC 4411A")
Discovered (1881) by Christian Peters (and later listed as NGC 4411)
Discovered (Jan 23, 1900) by Arnold Schwassmann (and later listed as IC 3339)
A 13th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SB(rs)cd?) in Virgo (RA 12 26 30.0, Dec +08 52 18)
Per Dreyer, IC 3339 (Schwassmann #99, 1860 RA 12 19 22, NPD 80 21.2) is an "11th magnitude star with nebulosity to northeast". The position precesses to RA 12 26 29.2, Dec +08 52 15, right on the foreground star superimposed on the galaxy, so the identification is certain. (A discussion of the duplicate listing will be posted in the entry for NGC 4411, which see for images and anything else.)

IC 3342
Recorded (Mar 23, 1903) by
Max Wolf
A 15th-magnitude star in Coma Berenices (RA 12 26 27.2, Dec +27 08 22)
Per Dreyer, IC 3342 (Wolf list IV #121, 1860 RA 12 19 27, NPD 62 05.1) is "very faint, very small, round, spiral, suddenly bright middle like a star". The position precesses to RA 12 26 27.5, Dec +27 08 22, right on the star listed above, so the identification is certain (particularly given the description).

IC 3343
Discovered (Jan 23, 1900) by
Arnold Schwassmann (100)
A 17th-magnitude star in Virgo (RA 12 26 34.7, Dec +08 52 35)
Per Dreyer, IC 3343 (Schwassmann #100, 1860 RA 12 19 28, NPD 80 20.9) is "extremely faint, very small, very questionable". The position precesses to RA 12 26 35.2, Dec +08 52 34, close to the star listed above, and per Corwin, that is probably what Schwassmann observed. There seems to be no objection to that identification, if only because there is nothing else nearby that would be of any greater interest. (Since the star is near the eastern edge of NGC 4411, see that entry for images.)

IC 3344 (= PGC 40706)
Discovered (May 10, 1904) by
Royal Frost
A 15th-magnitude elliptical galaxy (type dE5) in Coma Berenices (RA 12 26 32.3, Dec +13 34 46)
Per Dreyer, IC 3344 (Frost #901, 1860 RA 12 19 31, NPD 75 39.2) is "round, brighter middle, magnitude 14.5". The position precesses to RA 12 26 36.6, Dec +13 34 16, an arcmin southeast of the galaxy listed above, but there is nothing else near, so the identification is reasonably certain. Apparent size 0.8 by 0.4 arcmin. Listed as a member (VCC 917) of the Virgo Cluster.

IC 3345 (= SDSS J122633.34+242207.8)
Discovered (Mar 23, 1903) by
Max Wolf
A 16th-magnitude compact galaxy (type C?) in Coma Berenices (RA 12 26 33.3, Dec +24 22 08)
Per Dreyer, IC 3345 (Wolf list IV #122, 1860 RA 12 19 31, NPD 64 51.3) is "extremely faint, small, irregular figure". The position precesses to RA 12 26 32.6, Dec +24 22 10, less than 0.2 arcmin west of the galaxy listed above, and there is nothing else nearby, so the identification is certain. Apparent size 0.2 by 0.2 arcmin.

IC 3346 (= PGC 40739)
Discovered (May 10, 1904) by
Royal Frost
A 15th-magnitude elliptical galaxy (type dE1) in Virgo (RA 12 26 44.5, Dec +11 22 47)
Per Dreyer, IC 3346 (Frost #902, 1860 RA 12 19 34, NPD 77 52) is "extremely small, round, brighter middle, magnitude 15.5". The position precesses to RA 12 26 40.4, Dec +11 21 28, a couple of arcmin southwest of the galaxy listed above, but there is nothing else nearby save for a couple of 14th-magnitude stars, so the identification is reasonably certain. Apparent size 0.6 by 0.5 arcmin. Listed as a member (VCC 936) of the Virgo Cluster.

IC 3347 (probably = PGC 40732)
Discovered (May 10, 1904) by
Royal Frost
A 15th-magnitude elliptical galaxy (type dE2?) in Virgo (RA 12 26 44.0, Dec +10 54 17)
Per Dreyer, IC 3347 (Frost #903, 1860 RA 12 19 34, NPD 78 20) is "round, brighter middle, magnitude 15". The position precesses to RA 12 26 40.5, Dec +10 53 28, a couple of arcmin southwest of the galaxy listed above, and a little further from a somewhat brighter object. Some references list the nearer but fainter galaxy (PGC 40732) as IC 3347, and others list the brighter but more distant PGC 165158 as the IC object, and under such circumstances I would expect the confusion to be addressed by one of the experts in the field. But I can find no discussion of which galaxy should be listed as the IC object, so for now this entry will treat the closer galaxy as the probable IC 3347, and the entry immediately below treats the more distant one as a possible but less likely candidate. Any further discussion will have to wait for a future iteration of this page. PGC 40732's apparent size is about 0.5 by 0.4 arcmin. It is listed as a member (VCC 931) of the Virgo Cluster.

IC 3348 (= SDSS J122638.11+253729.6)
Discovered (Mar 23, 1903) by
Max Wolf
A 16th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type S?) in Coma Berenices (RA 12 26 38.1, Dec +25 37 30)
Per Dreyer, IC 3348 (Wolf list IV #123, 1860 RA 12 19 37, NPD 63 36.0) is "extremely faint, very small, irregular figure". The position precesses to RA 12 26 38.1, Dec +25 37 28, right on the galaxy, so the identification is certain. Apparent size 0.4 by 0.4 arcmin.

Discovered (May 10, 1904) by
Royal Frost
A 14th-magnitude elliptical galaxy (type dE1?) in Virgo (RA 12 26 47.1, Dec +12 27 14)
Per Dreyer, IC 3349 (Frost #904, 1860 RA 12 19 40, NPD 76 47) is "very small, round, a little brighter middle, magnitude 15". The position precesses to RA 12 26 46.0, Dec +12 26 28, an arcmin south southwest of the galaxy, but there is nothing else near, so the identification is certain. Apparent size 0.95 by 0.9 arcmin. Listed as a member (VCC 940) of the Virgo Cluster.
