NGC 5173

On this page I collect my observations of the elliptical galaxy NGC 5173 in the constellation Canes Venatici.

 

Introduction

The elliptical galaxy NGC 5173 in constellation Canes Venatici is located close to the galaxy M 51 (in a distance of 40'); I observed it just for this reason because I was curious. When observing NGC 5173, two more small galaxies appear in the eVscope's field of view (the names are unknown to me).
