Corwin's Notes

===== NGC 4895. Seen by d'A and Bigourdan; see NGC 4872. Also see NGC 4896 where Bigourdan has made some mistake with this galaxy that led him to believe that he had discovered a "nova"; it is actually another observation of NGC 4895.

Steve's Notes

===== NGC 4895 18" (4/20/12): this is one of the brightest galaxies in the Coma cluster and the middle of three in a near line with NGC 4881 5' NW and NGC 4907 7' SE. At 322x it appeared moderately bright, fairly large, very elongated 3:1 NNW-SSE, 60"x20", sharply concentrated with a very bright core and much fainter, thinner extensions. NGC 4895A, located 2.8' SW, appeared very faint, round, 15" diameter. 17.5" (4/21/90): fairly faint, fairly small, very elongated 3:1 NW-SE. Nearby companions are NGC 4881 5.2' NW and NGC 4895A 2.7' SW. Located just north of the central core of AGC 1656 and 14' N of NGC 4889.
