NGC 1778. Medium power shows a fairly bright cluster of thirty 10th magnitude and fainter stars extended 6' x 3' N-S. A starless streak running northwest to southeast divides the cluster into two groups. The northern group has more stars and most of the brighter members. A triple consisting of two 10th magnitude and one 13th magnitude star is located at the northern end. There are many star chains in the area, the most prominent one to the north. A large asterism of faint stars forming a figure-8 may be seen in the star field ENE of the cluster.

NGC 1073, 7' NE of a large equilateral triangle of 9th and 10th magnitude stars, appears faint, round, and 3.5' across. It is slightly brighter in its center and on its northern edge.

NGC 1073 has a faint, circular 5' halo gradually brightening to a NE-SW bar-like core. Several very faint stars or knots are visible on the galaxy's south and SW edges.

Excellent work Simas. This is quite an accomplishment. Do you think you will be able to get them all within one year?

Thank you Rick. It could be done in one year possibly, but with too much force. I like to do it relaxed way and include bright, "regular' targets on every observing night too. Another thing is - some targets in this list are too low for my latitude in Lithuania. Not counted those yet, don't know how much it would shorten my observation list.

Update - there is no target under the horizont for me but 10 of them lower than 10 degree.

Very impressive work Simas. Heck it was not that long ago when bagging all the Messier objects was an achievement but the Herschel 400 with modest equipment!

EAA is really a game changer.

Thank you selfo. Yes, Bortle 3 skies gives much of a boost for me. Just realized I made duplicate for NGC660 in #92 and #102. So #92 will be free number for another taget in the list, since #102 is much better.

NGC 3073. Slightly lower and to the left from center. NGC 3079 is a bright luminous 7 arc minute streak containing a long, unevenly bright core offset toward the eastern edge. A few dark and light patches are seen along the core. The nearby galaxy NGC 3073 appears as a faint, circular patch of haze. Eliptical galaxy in the Ursa Major.
