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. In a line with and due E of n7619 and n7626, this brightish little spiral was an intriguing object - again begging better seeing and higher magnification! At 210x and 420x the bright, mottled core was obviously elongated due N-S, while the averted-vision halo appeared very irregular, with wisps to SW, N, and ENE occasionally visible. Perhaps hints of ring structure were visible, despite the distance!"
Steve Gottlieb notes: "17.5-inch: fairly faint, fairly small, slightly elongated E-W, gradually brightens but no nucleus, fainter extensions. Located 11.0' E of N7626 in the Pegasus I cluster.
