PGC 1419356 (2MASX J02513141+1256298) is a low-surface brightness galaxy located in the ‘middle’ of some IFN in Aries.

PGC 1420123 and PGC 1420023, above and to the left of PGC 1419356 might be the more interesting pair. These appear to be interacting. These should have been Arps.

Luminance – 39x600s – 390 minutes – binned 1x1
RGB – 20:18:18x300s – 100:90:90 minutes each – binned 2x2

670 minutes total exposure – 11 hours 10 minutes

Imaged over seven nights in November, 2022 from Dark Sky New Mexico at Rancho Hidalgo (Animas, New Mexico) with a SBIG STF-8300M on an Astro-Tech AT12RCT at f/8 2432mm.


Even with more exposure time than I normally use, this one was very faint and hardly there in RGB.
