NGC 244 is another faint little galaxy. iT Resides in far southwestern Cetus about 2.5 degrees north-northeast of 2.0 magnitude Beta Ceti. NGC 244 presents a 60"x30" profile when viewed at 129X in the 10-inch Starfinder Newtonian. The galaxy is slightly elongated along an east-west axis. A 10th magnitude GSC star stands sentry just 3'.5 to the south. My sketch includes another 23 field stars for reference.
