NGC 5907, Galaxy in Draco

NGC 5905 68mm 53x - Dr Johannes Schiling, Lonsee

NGC 5905, Galaxy in Draco

10.3m, 11,5’X1,7′

Discovered by William Herschel 1788, May 5th

June 5th, 2015, very warm early summer night with very transparent sky, 23h – 23.50h

Moon rises 23.35h and brightens the sky

68mm Refractor, 53X

With this small telescope the galaxy was only visible in averted vision, but with structures: I could detect the brighter rim at the northwest side of the galaxy and I spied repeatedly the dark line or, in another description, a second “ray, very much extend, parallel to NGC 5907, and close preceding it” (Third Earl of Rosse in nineteenth century). Weak knots and nucleus.

Location: Lonsee, Swabian Mountains, Germany
