    Default Photos and descriptions don't always match



    In Sky and Tel for Nov. there is a description of observing
    Stephan's Quintet using an 18" reflector. The author
    describes seeing NGC-7319 as a dim haze with little
    central brightening. The photo of the galaxies shows
    NGC-7319 as having a noticeable central condensation.
    This leads me to believe that when someone is viewing
    these galaxies, they are probably only seeing the central
    condensation and some minor fringe and not the
    entire extent of the galaxy visible in the photos.

    Hi:

    Well, yeah, that would be a pretty safe bet, I'd guess. ;-)

    Peace,
