Object(s): NGC 925
Category: External galaxy.
Constellation: Tri
Data: mag 10.1  size 10.6' x 6'
Position: RA :  DEC :
The next one (after NGC 972) was misleadingly tougher, a 10.5 mag NGC 925
galaxy (size is 10.6' x 6').  I thought it would be a piece of cake, but 
couldn't be seen at 22x and 30x.  Detected at 60x, but more definite at 110x 
and I mean just barely. It lies to the north of a pair of star: mag 10.8 GSC 
2327:191 and mag 13.1 GSC 2327:397.  Elongated with averted vision. This galaxy 
is large at 146x and still detectable.  However, it is *much* dimmer than NGC 
972 and definitely much dimmer than the mag 10.8 x:191 star.  There was some
scattered high clouds around the sky.
