    Default 2 or More Galaxies, One Field of View Thread



    Thought I'd start a thread where we could post places to see more than one galaxy at a time. I'll list some obvious and not so obvious places. Please post your aperture, especially if the galaxies are not likely to be visible in small scopes.

    1. M105 & companion, 3384. Also 3389.

    2. Leo Triplet

    3. 4314, 4274, & 4278 in Coma Berenices

    4. M88 & 91 in Coma Berenices

    5. M60 & 59 in Virgo

    6. M85 & companion, CBr

    #1 & 2 are probably the only ones I could get in 20x80's, and possibly only 2, even then. 4.5 inch for the rest.

    Might be good to mention lp too. Mine is green, bortl 4.

    In Virgo there are maybe too many
    Then there are the Arp galaxy groupings 

    Anyway, some that I have seen:
    NGC 4485 – 4490 in CVn
    M51 - NGC 5195 in Uma
    M95-M96 in Leo (just fit)
    NGC 3607 and NGC 3608 in Leo (just left of the line Zosma – Chertan)
    NGC 4754 and NGC 4762 in Virgo
    Travelscope 350mm f/4 build by Roel
    Skywatcher Flextube 10"

    Stephan's Quintet is a nice one as well APOD: 2014 March 27 - Stephan's Quintet Plus One They are mag 12-13 so visual might be difficult except for excellent nights with a large scope.

    Yes, Stephan's Quintet certainly works, as does the Deerlick Group nearby. Have seen them both with my Z10 from our Bortle 2 dark site. I am quite shocked noone has mentioned M31, 32, 110. In my Z10 with the ES 82 24mm, they are framed together. Since Stephan's was mentioned, I will simply toss out the Hickson Compact Galaxy Groups, 1 through 100. Many in the ARP Catalog of Peculiar Galaxies as well. Some of both these groups are somewhat easy, some difficult even for large scopes. Obviously there is something for everyone and every aperture when discussing multiple galaxies in the same FOV.

    wow, what a rabbit's hole! The HCG and ARP catalogs alone could keep an astrophotographer busy for a few lifetimes at least.

    Indeed, but I don't do AP. There is plenty to see visually in some cases. Of course, with darker skies, and more aperture, one does gain some advantage.

    I haven't managed to get both I don't think, but 4485&90 are off Beta CVn, the dim star in CVn

    While NGC 4490 is pretty easy at magnitude 9.8 (SB 12.9), NGC 4485 at magnitude 12.1 (SB 13.4) can be elusive, especially when conditions are not so good. Aperture and of course good transparency do make a difference.
