NGC 404 the Mirach ghost
« on: September 13, 2016, 08:54:48 am »
OBSERVATION NOTE: Located NE of Mirach (mag 2.1) in Andromeda, this galaxy may go unnoticed despite having a magnitude of 11.1. Mirfach hiddes almost completely, appears behind like a ghost. It has a weak heart but an extensive and well marked halo. It has a size of 6 minutes.

A little hidden gem.
