End September at a starparty in France I wasn't lucky with the weather. Only 1,5 hour without clouds... I used this time to look for all the NGC-object around NGC 7331. NGC 7335, NGC 7336, NGC 7337 en NGC 7340 – also known as the 'fleas' – are real galaxies. All other NGC-objects are a single or a double star, only a 'galaxie' in the imagination of the discoverer. There is a lot of confusion about PGC 69291 en CGCG 514-066, who are not NGC 7325 en NGC 7326 (mistake in Sky & Telescope November 2018!).

Not all stars are sketched (clouds arrived to early). I blured the galaxies in GIMP for a more realistic look (than my pencil sketch).

Very nice, Jeff. I have to go after this one again. I could not see any fleas in my 6"...

Thanks for the reactions.

From a dark location NGC 7335 should be visible in a 6". Good hunt!

Yes, thank you. I was in a yellow zone when I observed NGC 7331. I knew there were some other galaxies in the area, but failed to spot them.
