ADS 15431 (STF 2841)

Poster: cildarith (see all of this user's photos)
Description: From 1 Pegasi, drop 2.2° due south and then slew 9.1° east to reach the challenging little galaxy NGC 7177. You will pass the bright stars 9 and 13 Pegasi on your way there. Just east of 13 Peg, you may notice a trio of 8th-magnitude stars in a short, shallow arc pointing northwest at the northern edge of your field of view. This group may be used as a landmark for a quick detour to STF 2841 (6.4, 7.9; 22.3"; 110°) located 1.6° due north. Kepple & Sanner describe this pair a yellow and greenish; I found yellow and yellowish-white. The generous separation of the component stars makes this double an easy mark in any telescope.
