Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Modern observations

Gramer, Lew (IAAC)

IAAC Observer: Lew Gramer, Site classification: rural; Limiting magnitude: 6.9 (zenith); Seeing: 6 of 10 - above average; 20" f/5 Tectron truss-tube dob Newtonian reflector:

"Member of the Pegasus I group. Actually the first object seen, just 5' NW of the mag 7 anchor star, this galaxy's bright core was at first mistaken to be a mag 10 star! After consulting the chart in Luginbuhl & Skiff however, I rechecked this "field star", and immediately noticed that it comprised both a distinct stellar nucleus and a seemingly overpowered elongated core, stretching NW-SE perhaps a full minute of arc. No hint of a halo or detail could be seen, although the object may bear a better look."

Steve Gottlieb

Steve Gottlieb notes: "17.5-inch: fairly faint, small, elongated 2:1 NW-SE, stellar nucleus, N7619 lies 12.7' NE. Located 5.5' NNW of mag 7.1 SAO 128119 in the Pegasus I cluster. 8-inch: faint, small, round, stellar nucleus, slightly elongated. A mag 7 star is 5' S. N7619 is 12' NE.
