Observing site: Leistilänjärvi, Nakkila, Finland

Darkness of the background sky: 3
Weather: Clear sky, mist, +1C
Observed objects: NGC 7448
This time I went observing to Leistilänjärvi, Nakkila with Jarkko Suominen, one of the active members of Porin Karhunvartijat. This time it was very misty, and transparency was rather poor because of this. Nevertheless, I made my routine variable star observations, and besides this, I observed also NGC 7448, a galaxy in Pegasus with my 10” Newton.
This was the only deep sky object I observed during this session. NGC 7448 is a galaxy located in the constellation of Pegasus, just 1 degree north from alpha Pegasi. Of this object I wrote following notes:
@120x: A rather faint and small galaxy, appeared as an oval shaped nebulous glow, long axis in N-S orientation, no details visible.
So this time no more deep sky observations because of poor observing conditions.
