Observation Notes:

NGC 147 fits tightly with NGC 185 in the same field with my 32 mm Plossl. At 120X through the Pentax XW10, it appeared as a large and very soft brightening of the sky background with a star superimposed over its core. Photographically, this is galaxy obviously elongated at a PA of 25 degrees. Visually, I didn't pick up on this at all. Gaining an extra magnitude of sky darkness outside town might help next time.
