|NGC 794: Galaxy (Aries) RA: 02h 02.5m / DEC: +18° 22'.4|
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder
The sketch at left renders NGC 794 as viewed at moderate power in my 10-inch, f/4.5 Newtonian. This 12.7 magnitude galaxy is elongated northeast-to-southwest across a 50"x40" area. HD 12594, a 6.2 magnitude star 19' distant, is visible just inside the eastern field boundary. An 8.4 magnitude star shines 5' northwest of HD 12594. In all, 43 field stars frame NGC 794.
