|NGC 7345: Edge-on Spiral Galaxy (Pegasus) RA: 22h 38.7m / DEC: +35° 32'.4|
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder
Located in far northwest Pegasus near NGC 7342, this faint little edge-on galaxy is a good challenge for moderate aperture. Shining meekly with a photographic magnitude of 15.1, NGC 7345 appears as a 45"x15" nebulous patch in my 10-inch Newtonian. The galaxy is aligned east-to-west near a grouping of four or five stars. Two brighter stars, 9th and 12th magnitude in the GSC, stand sentry due south. A close pair of magnitude 11 and 13 stars separates these. You'll find NGC 7345 half-a-degree east of 6.1 magnitude HD 214200.
