NGC/IC Objects

NGC 210: Spiral Galaxy (Cetus) RA: 00h 40.6m / DEC: -13° 52'.4
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder

NGC 210 is a spiral galaxy positioned 2.5 degrees southwest of NGC 246. Diphda, 2.0 magnitude and the second brightest star in Cetus, is 4.2 degrees to the south. My drawing was made at 82X and shows a bright central core within a 5'x3' nebulous patch. The spiral arms are extremely faint and not visible in my 10-inch Newtonian. I suspect detecting spiral structure would be quite an achievement for observers using even the largest backyard scopes. NGC 210 has an integrated visual magnitude of 10.9.
