|NGCs 467, 470 and 474: Galaxy Group (Pisces) RA: 01h 19.7m / DEC: +03° 20'.3 |
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder
This nice grouping is located 3.8 degrees southwest of 4.8 magnitude Mu (98) Piscium. NGC 474 is the largest member of the trio, according to MegaStar. However my drawing shows 10.7 magnitude NGC 470 as larger. NGC 470 appears 3'x2' in size at 129X in the 10-inch Starfinder Newtonian. It is flanked by a pair of 14th magnitude GSC stars. NGC 474 stands about 6' to the east. This SO-type galaxy covers a 2' diameter area and displays a stellar core region. It has an integrated visual magnitude of 10.5. NGC 467 is located 11' southwest of NGC 470, just inside the edge of the field. This 11.8 magnitude, SO-type galaxy is oriented northwest-to-southeast and covers a 2'x1' area.
