Site classification: Rural
Sky darkness: 6.5 <Limiting magnitude>
Seeing: 5-6 <1-10 Seeing Scale (10 best)>
Moon presence: None - moon not in sky
Instrument: 10.1" f/4.5 Newtonian reflector
Magnification: 77x, 128x, 257x
Filter(s): None
Object(s): NGC 7385
Category: External galaxy.
Constellation: Peg
Data: mag 12.0  size 1.0' X 1.0'
Position: RA 22:50  DEC +11:36
A faint, uniform, round halo which shows slight, gradual brightening
to a diffuse core.  A 12th magnitude field star is located just off
the NW edge.  Visible with averted vision at 77x, it was best seen
at 128x.
Uranometria 2000.0 (2nd edition) plots several additional galaxies
within the same 30' field with NGC7385.  None except perhaps NGC7386
could be seen.  With averted vision at 128x a very faint amorphous
glow was noted at the approx. position of NGC7386.  However, with
increased magnification it disappeared and could not be reacquired.
