Object: Stephan's Quintet NGC 7320 ++ Constell: PEG RA: 22h 36.1m Decl: +33° 56' Epoch: 2000 Mag: Size: Type: Observer: Jere Kahanpää Obs. place: Jyväskylä, Finland Date/Time: 19./20.9.1993, 0.15-0.40 Telescope: N 205/1000 Magn: 133x Filter: Field: 22' NE Lim.mag: 6.0m Background sky: 2-3 Seeing: 2 Weather: Very good! Brightness: Alt: 60° Description: NGC 7320: The brightest in the group but not the easiest due to low surface brightness. Elliptical, about 1,5'x1'. (12.6m (v), 2,2'x1,1', Sd) Brightness 5. NGC 7317 the first to be seen, faintly visible at 63x. Very close to a 12m star. Round, slightly concentrated. Brightness 4.(13.6m (v), 1,1'x1,1', E) NGC 7318/B: First seen as a concentrated 1.5'x1' glow. Higher Sf.Br. than -20. The nucleus is a it offset towards W and there is a vS brightening in the E parts. NGC 7318 A: (13.4m (v), 0.9', E2p, Br4) NGC 7318 B: (13.9m (b), 1.9'x1.2', Sbcp, Br5) Four of five galaxies were visible. The last one (-19) is the faintest one and I've never heard it mentioned to be visible with a 8-incher. 2 additional inches should do the job.
