NGC 2830: leider nicht darauf geachtet

NGC 2831: bei 206x indirekt südlich vom Zentrum der Galaxie NGC 2832 als schwächere Aufhellung erkennbar

NGC 2832: bei 72x ist direkt ein kleiner diffuser Nebelfleck sichtbar - das Zentrum wirkt indirekt etwas heller, nicht stellar - vermutlich der Kern von NGC 2832 - bei 160x hat der Nebelfleck eine eigenartige Struktur - bei 206x und 288x zeigt sich das Zentrum indirekt zweigeteilt, südlich vom Zentrum der Galaxie NGC 2832 wird NGC 2831 als schwächere Aufhellung sichtbar - beide Aufhellungen wechseln sich von der Sichtbarkeit her ab und sind nie zusammen sichtbar - witzig

bei 72x ist direkt ein kleiner diffuser Nebelfleck sichtbar - das Zentrum wirkt indirekt etwas heller, nicht stellar - vermutlich der Kern von NGC 2832 - bei 160x hat der Nebelfleck eine eigenartige Struktur - bei 206x und 288x zeigt sich das Zentrum indirekt zweigeteilt, südlich vom Zentrum der Galaxie NGC 2832 wird NGC 2831 als schwächere Aufhellung sichtbar - beide Aufhellungen wechseln sich von der Sichtbarkeit her ab und sind nie zusammen sichtbar - witzig
