Two galaxies high up at the moment

Recommended Posts

Very cold last night but I braved it to add to my galaxy collection.

First was a lovely small round galaxy in Andromeda but on the border with Triangulum. Although small it had a surface brightness of <mag13. After some hunting I found it, very nice..

The second find was in Perseus near that NGC 1023...It is a pair of faint galaxies but I could only make out the brighter one NGC 982 with my ten inch scope. It was very much enlongated when looked at with averted vision.:)

So that makes 354 galaxies logged...

Clear skies..

I am just working through a list of galaxies with a mag and sbr of less than 12.6...but I do stray from time to time!

Thanks for replying despite your busy schedule of doing all those articles on sketching!
