Runaway little Andromeda NGC147


NGC147 (Caldwell 17)

The medium used: graphite pencil,

The equipment used: 8″ f/10 SCT. Date: 14-10-2006

Weather: very good conditions, clear and transparency. Very close to Molina
de Aragon (Guadalajara, Spain.)

Faint galaxy, perfectly elliptic. This galaxy in one of the Andromeda
satellites, located in the constellation of Cassiopea.  Field rich in stars,
its better to observe it with adverted vision.

  1. Leonor,

    Very nice sketch of this little outlying member of the great spiral M-31. You have captured this gem of galaxy beautifully. Excellent work.
