Arp 72 (GLXGRP)

../dss/dss2blue_154656.00_+175300.00_5_web.jpg
Image source: DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: Arp72
Type: GLXGRP
Constellation: Ser
Coordinates: 15h46m56.00s / +17°53'00.00"

Group Members:
NGC5994 14m8 0.4x0.2'
NGC5996 (UGC10033, H2.97) 12m8 1.7x0.9' (20°)
The much more fainter NGC5994 is located southwestern of NGC5996.

I only focused on the brighter NGC5996, which was well seen with averted vision as slightly oval nebula, getting somewhat brighter toward the middle.

Arp 91 (GLXGRP)

../dss/dss2blue_153434.00_+151200.00_5_web.jpg
Image source: DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: Arp91
Type: GLXGRP
Constellation: Ser

Group Members:
NGC5953 (UGC9903, H2.178) 12m0 1.6x1.3' (50°)

NGC5953: Slightly oval with brighter core. Oval shape comes from nearby NGC5954, which appeared much fainter.

NGC5954: Fairly small & compact. Difficult to separate from nearby NGC5993. Barely seen with averted vision.

A more detailed observation of this galaxy pair will follow.

12.5" f/4.5, 111x, SQM-L 21.5
bei 72x ist die Superthin indirekt schon gut zu erkennen, kann aber nicht lange gehalten werden - Elongation NO-SW - recht schwach und nicht sehr länglich, sondern recht breit - bei 111x wird die Sache dann eindeutiger, es zeigt sich ein schwacher gleichmäßig heller Schimmer - Elongation aber maximal 3:1 - der Kern kann gut gehalten werden, phasenweise blitzt die Galaxie etwas länger auf - bei 160x nochmal leicht besserer Anblick bei 111x
