Observation Notes:

NGC 185 was one of two fairly subtle galaxies I observed on this evening. Both NGC 185 and NGC 147 fit into the same low power 88 arc minute true field of view. Unfortunately, the fit was too tight to make for a decent view, so I'm presenting them separately as observed with the Pentax XW10. NGC 185 was fairly straightforward, moderately condensed and slightly elongated at a PA of about 30 degrees. It appeared to be about 7 arc minutes across with a yellow star marking the west end of the 120X, 35 arc minute wide field.
