Together with NGC 7715 listed as No. 284 in Arp's "Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies" (Astrophysical Journal Supplement, vol. 14, 1966.) He remarks "some very small knots in connecting streamer."
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a 13.0 mag galaxy. Their coded description reads IRRR,HISB,LGINT DKLN SSTR SUSP.
Van den Bergh (1961, Astronomical Journal, Vol 66, p566) notes that this galaxy forms a pure pair with NGC 7715 2.0 arcminutes away.
Steve Coe, using a 13.1" f/5.6, notes: ""NGC 7714 and 7715 Very faint, small, round and not brighter in the middle at 100X. Going to 165X helps because you can get the star 16 PSC out of the field of view and make the dim galaxy easier to spot."
