- Thin Galaxies (Peg) -

Here I will present some quite thin galaxies with an axis ratio of at least 1:5. Nevertheless this value is calculated from the given angular size, so the visual impression can differ.

12.5" f/4.5, 160x, SQM-L 21.5
bei 160x ist östlich von zwei schwachen Sternen ein schwacher Schimmer erkennbar - eher eine Qual, nur eine leichte Aufhellung, kein Strich wie bei einer Superthin mit einem Achsverhältnis von 1:17 zu erwarten - bei 206x keine Verbesserung
