Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder

NGC 7363 resides in southern Lacerta, about 2 degrees southeast of 4.1 magnitude 1 Lacertae. This is a challenging galaxy, appearing 30"x15" in size at 190X in the 10-inch Newtonian. With a photographic magnitude of 15.5, NGC 7263 probably has a visual magnitude in the 13.5-14.5 range. Eighth magnitude GSC 2746:560 is visible 6'.5 to the north just inside the field boundary. This star is flanked by 14th and 14th magnitude GSC stars immediately to the south. Look 12 arc minutes southeast for NGC 7265.
