|NGC 298: Galaxy (Cetus) RA: 00h 55.0m / DEC: -07° 20'.0|
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder
The sketch at left renders the view in my 10-inch Newtonian at 129X. NGC 298 covers a 120"x90" area with a 14th magnitude GSC star discernible at the western edge. The bright star just inside the eastern boundary of the eyepiece field is 5.9 magnitude HD 5384. The two bright stars between the galaxy and the northern boundary are 9.0 and 10.5 magnitude, respectively. NGC 298 is about 1 degree southeast of NGCs 273, 274 and 275.
