NGG 4384 / Markarian 207


Recommended Posts

After what seems like weeks of cloud, gaps appeared and the moon was out of the way so I decided to get out the 20 inch dob.

The stars were nice and sharp during collimation, a good sign.

The session was cut short but cloud moving in again but I did manage to observe another Markarian galaxy Mrk207/ngc 4384. It is 130 million  light years away and is a visual mag 13 object.

Here is my record.


The galaxy was obvious with averted vision. Small but made a pleasing triangle with the two stars nearby.

Here is a couple of images from the Internet. The first is from the hubble space telescope archives. Lots going on !


This is an image that roughly aligns with my drawing.


So why not try for yourself using this chart as a guide and report back.


Go on, add this to your target list visually, eaa or to image, would love to hear how you get on.
