|NGC 7457: Galaxy (Pegasus) RA: 23h 01.0m / DEC: +30° 08'.7|
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder
You'll find NGC 7457 in northern Pegasus, about 2 degrees north-northwest of 2.4 magnitude Scheat. Otherwise known as Beta Pegasi, Scheat marks the northwest corner of the Great Square asterism. My sketch presents the appearance of this SO-type galaxy at 129X in the 10-inch Starfinder equatorial Newtonian. NGC 7457 covers a 2'x1' area. A close pair of 12th and 13th magnitude GSC stars lies immediately south of the 11.2 magnitude galaxy. Four brighter stars are grouped west of NGC 7457. The brightest of these is 8.4 magnitude HD 217351, 16' west of the galaxy.
