Abbreviations in the CON column are the IAU versions.
The column TYPE has following abbreviations:
OPNCL = open cluster PLNNB = planetary nebula GLOCL = globular cluster CL+NB = open cluster and nebulosity BRTNB = bright emission or reflection nebula
Hubble Classification for galaxies or GALXY where no classification existed.

In the Herschel Column the Classes are:
I = Bright Nebulae III = Very Faint Nebulae V = Very Large
Nebulae
VII = Pretty Much Compressed
Clusters of Large or Small Stars

Observation Notes
2903 LEO Sb 09 32.2 +21 29 10.0 13.3'X6.0' H I 56 is one of the best non-Messier galaxies. It is easy in 10x50 binocs or a large finder scope. At 175X in the 12.5" f/6 this galaxy is bright and is mottled across the face with a much brighter core. There is a bright spot about 4 arc minutes from the core.
2964 LEO Sc 09 42.9 +31 51 12.5 3.5'X1.9' H I 114 Pretty bright, pretty large, much brighter middle with an occaisonally stellar nucleus, elongated 1.5 X 1 in PA 90
3190 LEO Sb 10 18.1 +21 50 11.9 4.5'X1.7' H II 44 Pretty bright, pretty large, much brighter middle, Elongated 2 X 1 in PA 135 at 135X. Extremely faint, small and round companion to the NW (NGC 3187).
3193 LEO E0 10 18.4 +21 54 12.4 2.5'X2.5' H II 45 Pretty bright, pretty small, round, much brighter middle with an occaisonally stellar nucleus, a 10th mag star is on the North side at 135X.
3226 LEO GALXY 10 23.4 +19 53 13.3 2.5'X2.2' H II 28 form a pair 50' east of Gamma Leo. 3227 is pretty bright, considerably elongated and has a pretty bright nucleus that is almost stellar. 3226 is pretty bright, round and has a bright core. These observations are with a 12.5" f/6 at 160X. What is weird about these two galaxies is that they appear to overlap each other even at high powers! The round galaxy is at one end of the elongated galaxy and it looks like a club with a knot at one end. Don't take my word for it, go look for yourself.
3227 LEO Sa 10 23.5 +19 52 12.2 6.5'X4.5' H II 29 form a pair 50' east of Gamma Leo. 3227 is pretty bright, considerably elongated and has a pretty bright nucleus that is almost stellar. 3226 is pretty bright, round and has a bright core. These observations are with a 12.5" f/6 at 160X. What is weird about these two galaxies is that they appear to overlap each other even at high powers! The round galaxy is at one end of the elongated galaxy and it looks like a club with a knot at one end. Don't take my word for it, go look for yourself.
3377 LEO GALXY 10 47.7 +13 59 10.7 4.0'X2.5' H II 99 Bright, pretty large, much brighter middle with a bright, stellar nucleus, elongated 1.5 X 1 in PA 30. This nice galaxy is a little mottled in the outer sections at 135X.
3379 LEO E1 10 47.8 +12 35 9.6 3.8'X3.8' H I 17 (M-105) Bright, large, little elongated, very bright middle, stellar nucleus, two companions in the field at 100X.
3384 LEO E7 10 48.3 +12 38 10.0 5.4'X2.8' H I 18 Pretty faint, large, somewhat elongated and not much brighter in the middle, rather mushy at 100X.
3412 LEO GALXY 10 50.9 +13 25 10.8 3.3'X1.9' H I 27 Bright, pretty large, elongated 2.5 X 1 in PA 135, very bright in the middle with stellar nucleus at 135X. This galaxy is somewhat mottled.
3489 LEO GALXY 11 00.3 +13 54 10.9 3.2'X1.9' H II 101 Pretty bright, pretty large, elongated 3 X 1 in PA 75, much brighter in the middle with a stellar nucleus at 135X, averted vision makes this galaxy grow in size.
3521 LEO GALXY 11 05.8 -00 02 10.1 13.5'X7.0' H I 13 Bright, Large, elongated 2.5 X 1 in PA 135 and brighter in the middle at 100X. Looks like a mini-Andromeda galaxy.
3593 LEO GALXY 11 14.6 +12 49 11.8 5.2'X2.1' H I 29 is pretty bright, pretty large, elongated and has a much brighter middle. What is bizarre about this galaxy is that at 200X in the 12.5", the core is elongated 2X1. I don't remember seeing an elongated nucleus in a galaxy before.
3607 LEO GALXY 11 16.9 +18 03 10.2 4.5'X4.0' H II 50 Pretty bright, pretty large, round, much brighter in the middle with a stellar nucleus, somewhat mottled at 135X. Located in a group of three.
3608 LEO GALXY 11 17.0 +18 09 11.7 3.0'X2.5' H II 51 Pretty bright, pretty large, round, bright middle at 100X. There are two companions in the 30 arc min field of view.
3626 LEO GALXY 11 20.1 +18 21 11.2 2.8'X2.0' H II 52 Pretty bright, small, elongated 2.5 X 1 in PA 165, much brighter in the middle with an almost stellar nucleus at 135X.
3628 LEO GALXY 11 20.3 +13 36 11.5 15.5'X4.3' H V 8 Pretty bright, large, somewhat brighter in the middle, very much elongated in PA 90 with a hint of a dark lane at 165X.
3640 LEO GALXY 11 21.1 +03 14 11.8 4.5'X4.0' H II 33 Pretty bright, pretty large, little elongated 1.5 X 1 in PA 90, much brighter in the middle at 135X. There is a very faint, small, round companion (NGC 3641) which can be seen with averted vision only.
3655 LEO GALXY 11 22.9 +16 35 11.6 1.6'X1.0' H I 5 Pretty bright, small, little elongated 1.2 X 1 in PA 30, brighter in the middle, this galaxy is not much at 135X.
3686 LEO GALXY 11 27.7 +17 13 11.6 3.1'X2.5' H II 160 Pretty faint, pretty large, somewhat brighter in the middle, little elongated 1.5 X 1 in PA 0 at 135X. There is a similar galaxy in the field to the south.
3810 LEO GALXY 11 41.0 +11 28 11.4 4.1'X2.8' H I 21 Pretty bright, pretty large, brighter in the middle, elongated 1.8 X 1 in PA 30 at 135X.
3900 LEO GALXY 11 49.2 +27 01 12.5 3.2'X1.6' H I 82 Pretty faint, pretty large, little elongated 1.2 X 1 in PA 0, brighter middle, averted vision helps the contrast of this object quite a bit at 135X.
3912 LEO GALXY 11 50.1 +26 29 13.2 1.8'X1.0' H II 342 Faint, pretty small, round, a little brighter in the middle, this galaxy is not much at 135X.
