Arp 199 (GLXGRP)

DSS
© DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: Arp199
Type: GLXGRP
Constellation: Boo
Coordinates: 14h17m04.00s / +36°34'30.0"

Group members:
NGC5544 (UGC9142, H2.419) b13.2 mag 0.9×0.9'
NGC5545 (UGC9143) b14.0 mag 1.0×0.3'
8" f/6, 150x, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.0
At first glance both galaxies appeared as elongated, evenly bright nebula. NGC5545 hardly separated from NGC5544 and appeared elongated. NGC5545 was roundish and also not easy to separate. Overall pretty faint.
