NGC/IC Objects

NGC 7066: Spiral Galaxy (Pegasus) RA: 21h 26.1m / DEC: +14° 10'.0
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder

NGC 7066 is an off-the-beaten-path little galaxy. The closest celestial landmark is M15 about 2.2 degrees to the southeast. There are a few moderately bright stars in the neighborhood. 7.3 magnitude HD 204215 is half-a-degree south and 6.8 magnitude HD 203699 is 37' to the west. My sketch renders the view in my 10-inch Newtonian. NGC 7066 covers a 45"x30" area along an axis aligned nearly east-west. With a photographic magnitude of 14.8, this galaxy is a real challenge for moderate aperture. I recorded 30 field stars while making the observation, including several 14th magnitude GSC stars close to the galaxy.
