NGC 7139 is a very faint, moderately large, circular, grey smudge with a somewhat brighter center and diffuse edges. The halo, 45' in diameter, is about the size of Jupiter's disk. A 13th magnitude star is 1' SE of the planetary's center. To the east is a triangle of stars, from the southern vertex of which a string of stars curve southwest.

NGC 7139 appears moderately faint, quite, large, and round with uniform brightness. An O-III makes the periphery more distinct. A 13.5 magnitude star touches the NE edge, and a pair of 14th magnitude stars lies 1' NW.

25x30s. Through thick mist.

NGC 660 is one of only about 10 polar ring galaxies that are known. It is classified as a Sa barred spiral, but it believed to have formed from the collision of two galaxies in the past.

Our perspective of NGC 660 is inclined from the axis of the disk so that the foreground portion of the ring does not cross the plane in the center, but towards one side. The central region of this galaxy is considered a "starburst" region due to the extreme amount of star formation. NGC 660 galaxy is estimated to be 24 million light years away.|

NGC1977. The beautiful grouping of reflection nebulae NGC 1973, NGC 1975, and NGC 1977 in Orion are often overlooked in favor of the better known Orion Nebula (M 42). But this bright nebulous complex is interesting in its own right, being one of the brightest reflection nebulae in the sky.

NGC 1637 is relatively bright. Its 3' x 2' NNE-SSW halo contains a circular core with a stellar nucleus. A 13th magnitude star lies 2' NE of the center.

The halo is unevenly bright with hints of spiral structure in the NE and SE portions. The core is moderately large but unevenly bright and has a stellar nucleus.

NGC 1514 is a very dim planetary nebula in the constellation Taurus. It was discovered by William Herschel on November 13th, 1790. He described it as "A most singular phenomenon!" The appearance of this object caused him to rethink his idea of planetary nebulae.
