|NGC 7068: Spiral Galaxy (Pegasus) RA: 21h 26.5m / DEC: +12° 11'.1|
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder
NGC 7068 is easy to find. It's located 51' west of the fine globular star cluster M15. However, this faint little galaxy rarely turns a head or catches an eye when observers are in the area. My sketch, made with the 10-inch Starfinder at 129X, shows NGC 7068 an arc minute south of the 9th magnitude GSC star at the center of the field. The galaxy presents as a 30" diameter disk with a stellar core region. Twenty-six field stars are shown.
