    Just my own curiosity...has anyone here ever been able to spot Einstein's Cross (or, at least the galaxy) in Pegasus, with their scope? I know it's extremely faint (Around 14.5 mag)...but, again, just thought I'd ask!

    well 14.5 mag is really a challenge task for me . It seems this object is always located very low attitude and very near to the southern horizon . Not easy to be figured out , and not really sure about that for me as well .

    This is an interesting article. Apparently with my 12" I will only be able to find the Galaxy eventually. Pegasus is quite high in my sky for the moment. It's actually not far from the zenith. Next time I have a very clear night I'll try to find it. Must be a challenging object I guess.
