Continuing with my renewed vigour I grabbed a small break in cloud last night to grab an observation and sketch. It isn’t the most exciting galaxy so I wont post this on social media, but as I’m working through the Arp’s I can’t just pick the cherries 😉

Located in Pegasus, very close to alpha Pegasi. Quite bright mag 11.6, elongate N-S. Described as a spiral with detached segments. I noted a bright nucleus, and a brighter region on the northern tip, down in my drawing. I saw the galaxy as having a slightly curved nature. Drawing made on 25-10-17 using the 505mm mirror and Watec 120N+ Cooled video camera.
