NGC 636 is an 11.4 magnitude elliptical galaxy in central Cetus. There are several bright galaxies clustered in this region of the sea monster. NGC 615 is located 1 degree to the west. The sketch at left renders the view in my 10-inch Starfinder Newtonian at 129X. NGC 636 is slightly elongated northwest-to-southeast and covers a 60"x45" area. Ten field stars complete the view.
