Filter(s): None
Object(s): NGC 1134
Category: External galaxy.
Constellation: Ari
Data: mag 12.2  size 2.0' X 0.5'
Position: RA 02:54  DEC +13:01
A uniform elongated oval halo aligned NW-SE.  It gradually brightens to a
diffuse core.  A very faint, 14th magnitude field star, is located just off
the E. edge.  Of several additional galaxies plotted inside of the same 128x
(34') field centered on NGC1134, none except for NGC1134 itself could be seen.
Visible with averted vision at 77x, it did not bear magnification well and was
best seen at 128x.
