NGC 1003: Galaxy (Perseus) RA: 02h 39.3m / DEC: +40° 52'.4
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder

NGC 1003 can be found in far western Perseus just across the border from Andromeda. This spiral galaxy resides 2.0 degrees south-southwest from M34 and 52' northwest of 4.9 magnitude 12 Persei. The sketch at left presents a low power (49X) view in my 10-inch Starfinder Newtonian. The 11.4 magnitude Sc-type galaxy is aligned northeast-southwest across a 3'x1' area. GSC 2836:90 marks the western edge of the galaxy. Another 23 field stars complete the view.
