Constellation: Eri
Data: mag 10.3  size 2.2' x 0.9'
Position: RA :  DEC :
NGC 1332 is in a bad part of my sky, already at the SSW position, where there
is considerable light pollution.
Could not be seen at 22x.  Non-stellar at 30x.  Elongated shape with bright 
core at 60x.  Very elongated with bright core at 110x.  Galaxy blinked in and 
out at 146x.  Obviously, the mag 14 NGC 1331 was beyond the reach of the TV-102.
