NGC/IC Objects

NGC 4665: Galaxy (Virgo) RA: 12h 45.1m / DEC: +03° 03'.4
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder

The drawing at left renders the view in my 10-inch reflector at 82X. NGC 4665 is centrally positioned and 60" in diameter. A 10th magnitude GSC star stands immediately to the southwest. 8.2 magnitude HD 110763 is visible near the northern edge of the sketch, 22' from the galaxy. An 8th magnitude GSC star caresses the eastern boundary, also 22' distant. Another 18 field stars provide context. You'll find NGC 4665 2.6 degrees west-southwest of 3.4 magnitude Auva, Delta (43) Virginis.
