8" f/6, 96x, Bortle 5, NELM 5m5+, SQM-L 20.8
Both galaxies already visible at 37x as compact brightening. At 96x evident with averted vision, roundish to slightly oval, slight brightening toward the middle. At 171x not clearly separated, but NGC751 appeared as extension. At 214x both galaxies could be separated in few moments. NGC750 appeared larger.

MODERATE
8" f/6, 171x, Bortle 4, NELM 6m0+, SQM-L 21.1
NGC750 appeared round with brighter core. I meant to see this galaxy separated from its neighbour NGC751, but unsure and without dark space. NGC750 appeared interestingly somewhat more compact than NGC751 - maybe a mistake by myself!? However NGC750 was well visible with averted vision. I will have a closer look at this galaxy pair the next time.

NGC 750: bei 111x ist NGC 750 nicht zu trennen und wirkt zusammen mit NGC 751 leicht länglich

NGC 751: bei 160x als Kondensation in nördlichen Teil dieses Nebels erkennbar - sie wirkt etwas größer und heller als der südliche Teil des Nebels

bei 36x zeigt sich eine leichte flächige Aufhellung - bei 85x leichte Helligkeitsunterschiede, als ob Sterne auf der Sichtachse der Galaxie liegen - ein wenig habe ich den Eindruck, dass sich ein Strich durch die Galaxie zieht - das Zentrum ist etwas heller - bei 160x wirkt NGC 890 leicht länglich

bei 36x wirkt die Galaxie größer als die in ihrer Nähe stehende NGC 890, aber nicht so hell wie diese - bei 85x ist NGC 925 noch immer sehr diffus - zwei Sterne begrenzen sie am westlichen Rand und ein schwacher Stern an der Ostseite - bei 111x leicht gebogener Halo Eindruck (vermutlich bewirkt diesen Eindruck der stärkere südliche Spiralarm)
