|NGC 5907: Edge-on Spiral Galaxy (Draco) RA: 15h 15.9m / DEC: +56° 19'.8|
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder
NGC 5907 is a delicate, needle thin galaxy in Draco. A 129X view in the 10-inch Starfinder shows its 10.3 magnitude glow is spread across a 12'x1' area. An 11th magnitude star sits just a few arc minutes from the southern tip of the Sb-type galaxy. An arrangement of four 14th magnitude stars runs into the northern tip. You'll find this fine edge-on galaxy about 3 degrees south-southwest of 3.3 magnitude Edasich, Iota (12) Draconis. M102 is located 1.4 degrees to the west-southwest.
