NGC1325, NGC1319, NGC1332, NGC1332 and NGC1331

Observing Log
Date of observation: January 2, 2002
Time at end of first CCD image 9:48 PST
Time at end of last CCD image 9:49 PST
Observing location: home observatory
Fastar CCD Imaging session
 
Sky Conditions
For Sun set, astronomical twilight end, Moon rise or set, astronomical twilight begin and Sun rise refer to dark sky.
Only three 30 second images were taken before clouds ended the night's imaging session.
Images were taken low over Portland, Oregon sky glow.
The sky glow and noise were over half the dynamic range of the ST-237 CCD camera.
