NGC/IC Objects

NGC 910: Spiral Galaxy (Perseus) RA: 02h 25.4m / DEC: +41° 49'.5
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder

This 12.1 magnitude elliptical galaxy is among several galaxies neighboring the impressive edge-on spiral NGC 891. The sketch at left presents a 129X view in my Starfinder 10-inch Newtonian. NGC 910 is just southeast of the center of the field. The 45"x40" oval is slightly elongated north-south. The field stars in my sketch total 48, including several between 12th and 13th magnitude. NGC 898 lies just beyond the field boundary to the west.
