(IAAC) NGC 7331 CCD Observation

>Original Attempt to Post Date: Sat, 24 Nov 2001 23:29:34 -0500

On 11/21/01 in the Washington D.C. suburb of Rockville Maryland, we had a 
very clear evening with good seeing and not much turbulence.  I took a CCD 
image of NGC 7331.  The image may be found at:
http://www.highenergyastro.homestead.com.  Click on the thumbnail of M1 in 
the upper right corner of the page.  You will then be presented with a 
table.  Click the NGC 7331 entry in the table to view the image.

I have heard descriptions of NGC 7331 being a near edge on galaxy.  It seems 
to me that the term "near" must be a relative term, since much of the spiral 
structure is visible in my image.

I included a cut from RealSky of the eame area of sky for your comparison.

I imaged the field for over 1 hour to produce the image.

Clear Skies,

Steve Robinson
