Discovered by Sir John Herschel at the Cape of Good Hope with an 18-inch f/13 speculum telescope. He recorded it as "B, lR, gbM, 50 arcseconds, has a bright triple star S.p." On a second occassion he called it "pB, R, pgbM, 40 arcseconds, a large triple star S.p."
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a galaxy. Their coded description reads SB,B TOWARDS BAR.
Steve Coe, observing with a 13" f/5.6, notes: "Pretty bright, pretty small, elongated 2x1 in PA 90 and much brighter in the middle at 100X. There is a very nice triple star on the south side with one star light yellow and two blue companions."
