Object: Galaxies NGC 7331 + companions Constell: PEG RA: 22h 37.1m (-31) Decl: +34° 25' Epoch: 2000 Mag: 9.4m (v) Size: 10.5'x3.7' Type: SA(s)b Observer: Jere Kahanpää Obs. place: Jyväskylä, Finland Date/Time: 19./20.9.1993, 22.40-00.10 Telescope: N 205/1000 Magn: 133x Filter: (Meade LPR) Field: 22' NE Lim.mag: 6.0m Background sky: 2-3 Seeing: 2 Weather: Very good. A few degrees below 0 °C. Brightness: Alt: 60° Description: The brightest and largest galaxy is NGC 7331. Almost edge-on, size about 7'x2'. A dust lane along the W edge was suspected; the edge is sharper than it's eastern counterpart. Faintly mottled. The mottling is brightest near the core, and two especially bright brightenings are visible about 1.2' N of the core and 1.5' SE. The galaxy has a mag. 13.5 stellar core. Brightness 2. NGC 7337: An extremely faint glow around a mag. 14 stellar core. NGC 7340: Slightly fainter than -37. Very small (25''). A 14.5m core in a very faint glow. NGC 7335: Largest but most difficult of the companions. Am extremely faint glow. Elliptical (SE-NW). A stellar core suspected.
