Group NGC 1023 is a galaxy cluster late-type ( spiral and irregular ) that are around 10Mpac .
Just below the Milky Way and in one area, we x 10 º 10 º , which occupies part of the constellation Perseus , Andromeda and the Triangle found this cluster of galaxies .
Full members of the cluster :
– NGC 925 ( UGC dominates a subgroup with UGC 1865 and 1924)
– NGC 1023 ( is the principal of the whole cluster and leads another subgroup with NGC 891, NGC 949, NGC 1003, NGC 1058, UGC 2014 , UGC 2034 and UGC 2259 )
– NGC 746 and IC 239.
The amateur who has a tube 8” or 10” and a sky at least one stellar magnitude of 6, can see how little its four brightest members : NGC 1023, NGC 891, NGC 925 and NGC 1058.
Contemplation while these four galaxies of the same cluster and a similar distance , allow us to easily appreciate the different morphological characteristics and the actual importance of the size and mass of each .
Greetings to all visitors of this page.
