Lovely shot Clive! ?

Its nice to see images of galaxies, especially when you get more than one in the same frame.

 

Is that NGC 147 (mag +9.4) nearly a degree away from NGC 185?

I thought both galaxies were in there at first Steve, but only NGC185, on the left is a sixth mag star. NGC147 is just slightly above the top right corner of the image.

That's all sorted then Pete! We just need Clive to do it all again and point a bit more to the right and up, or left and down, depending on scope orientation! ?

Thanks Clive, this got us digging and delving... Thanks for that! ?

 

This sort of thing does get you looking a bit deeper... NGC 185 and NGC 147 are both gravitationally bound and satellite galaxies of M31 but they lie a bit closer than M31 at 2.08 million light years.

Keep grabbing these off the beaten track DSO's Clive. :2thumbsup: 

 

Following in the steps of the Herschels. William first bagged 185 in the eyepiece in 1787, and John discovered 147 in 1829. :)
