At ~4½° N of Markab. I have not observed this galaxy since a long time. With my surprise, I observe two fuzzy objects, whereas the only NGC in trimmings is 7331. The two objects are of similar brightness. After checks, the western one represents the galaxy whereas the other one was only a tight alignment of 4 very weak stars (magv between 10 and 11).
