NGC 7450 (= PGC 70252)
Discovered (Nov 19, 1876) by
Wilhelm Tempel
A 13th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type (R)SB(r)a?) in Aquarius (RA 23 00 47.7, Dec -12 55 04)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7450 (= GC 6108, Tempel list IV (#11, list I #47, A.N. 2138), 1860 RA 22 53 31, NPD 103 39.7) is "very faint, small".
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 3185 km/sec, NGC 7450 is about 150 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 1.8 by 1.8? arcmin, it is about 80 thousand light years across. It is a Seyfert galaxy (type Sy 1.5), with the very bright core typical of such galaxies.

A 12th-magnitude elliptical galaxy (type E4?) in Pegasus (RA 23 01 06.6, Dec +16 23 21)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7454 (= GC 4880 = WH II 249, 1860 RA 22 54 11, NPD 74 21.7) is "faint, considerably small, a little extended, a little brighter middle, 11th magnitude star 1 arcmin to west".

Also observed (date?) by Herbert Howe
A 14th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type Sa?) in Pisces (RA 23 00 40.9, Dec +07 18 12)

NGC 7456 (= PGC 70304)
Discovered (Sep 4, 1834) by
John Herschel
A 12th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type Sc?) in Grus (RA 23 02 10.1, Dec -39 34 09)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7456 (= GC 4881 = JH 3966 = GC 4882 = JH 3967, 1860 RA 22 54 15, NPD 130 19.8) is "very faint, large, much extended 34°, very gradually a little brighter middle".
Physical Information: Apparent size about 5.5 by 1.6 arcmin.

NGC 7457 (= PGC 70258)
Discovered (Sep 12, 1784) by
William Herschel
Also observed (Sep 16, 1828) by John Herschel
An 11th-magnitude lenticular galaxy (type E/SA0(rs)?) in Pegasus (RA 23 00 59.8, Dec +30 08 41)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7457 (= GC 4883 = JH 2201 = WH II 212, 1860 RA 22 54 18, NPD 60 36.4) is "considerably bright, considerably large, a little extended, gradually much brighter middle, mottled but not resolved, 2 small (faint) stars to north".
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 810 km/sec, NGC 7457 is about 38 million light years away, and although for such a small radial velocity, peculiar (non-Hubble expansion) velocities could considerably alter the result, the value is in good agreement with redshift-independent distance estimates of 38 to 43 million light years. Given that and its apparent size of 4.3 by 2.3 arcmin, the galaxy is about 50 thousand light years across. As is typical of most galaxies, stars in its core are much closer together than in more distant regions. Estimates based on HST images of the core are that it is packed with more than 30 thousand times as many stars per unit volume of space than the region near our Sun. This means that the stars near the center of the galaxy are over thirty times closer together than stars near the Sun. That represents separations of only a light month or two; but although the sky would be full of stars in the core of NGC 7457, they would still be infinitely small dots in comparison to their distance from each other. Used by the de Vaucouleurs Atlas of Galaxy Types as an example of galaxy type SA0-.

Ormond Stone
A lost or nonexistent object in Aquarius (RA 23 05 51.0, Dec -19 56 24)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7481 (Ormond Stone list I (#261), 1860 RA 22 58 25, NPD 110 41.7) is "very faint, very small, round, gradually brighter middle".

NGC 7482 (=
NGC 7472 = PGC 70446)
Discovered (Aug 11, 1864) by Albert Marth (and later listed as NGC 7482)
Discovered (Dec 7, 1865) by Otto Struve (and later listed as NGC 7472)
Also observed (date?) by Sherburne Burnham
A 14th-magnitude elliptical galaxy (type E3?) in Pisces (RA 23 05 38.6, Dec +03 03 32)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7482 (= GC 6122, Marth #521, 1860 RA 22 58 33, NPD 87 41) is "faint, very small, stellar". The first IC states "7472 and 7477 to be struck out, both being = 7482 with errors of 2 minutes and 1 minute in RA (Burnham)". (Despite Dreyer's statement, the galaxy is usually called NGC 7472, and NGC 7482 is treated as the duplicate entry.)
Physical Information: Given the duplicate entry, see NGC 7472 for anything else.

NGC 7483 (= PGC 70455)

Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7483 (= GC 4893 = JH 2206, 1860 RA 22 58 40, NPD 87 12.7) is "very faint, small, extended, pretty suddenly brighter middle".
Physical Information: Apparent size about 1.6 by 1.1 arcmin.

NGC 7484 (= PGC 70505)

Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7485 (= GC 4895 = JH 2207, 1860 RA 22 59 24, NPD 56 39.1) is "very faint, small, round, brighter middle, 10th magnitude star to west".
Physical Information: Apparent size about 1.3 by 0.3 arcmin.

NGC 7486
Recorded (Aug 25, 1871) by
Ralph Copeland
A pair of stars in Pegasus (RA 23 06 13.4, Dec +34 06 08)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7486 (Copeland using Lord Rosse's telescope, 1860 RA 22 59 31, NPD 56 39.3) is "very faint, very small, 2' east of h 2207", (JH) 2207 being NGC 7485.
Physical Information:

NGC 7487 (= PGC 70496 =
NGC 7210)
Discovered (Nov 17, 1827) by John Herschel (and later listed as NGC 7210)
Discovered (Aug 3, 1886) by Lewis Swift (and later listed as NGC 7487)
A magnitude 13.5 lenticular galaxy (type E/S0?) in Pegasus (RA 23 06 50.5, Dec +28 10 45)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7487 (Swift list IV (#89), 1860 RA 23 00 13, NPD 62 34.1) is "very faint, small, round". The position precesses to RA 23 06 59.3, Dec +28 11 16, about 2 arcmin east northeast of the galaxy listed above, the description fits and there is nothing comparable nearby, so the identification is certain.
Discovery Notes: Herschel's GC (and hence Dreyer's NGC) entry for NGC 7210 (which see for a discussion of its relatively recent identification as a prior observation of NGC 7487) had a right ascension an hour too small and an NPD a degree too large; as a result, Herschel's observation was not connected with any physical object until 2016. Given the all too recent identification of NGC 7210, the galaxy is universally listed as NGC 7487, and the usual usage of the lower NGC number is not appropriate in this case.
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 9535 km/sec, a straightforward calculation (using H = 70 km/sec/Mpc) indicates that NGC 7487 is about 445 million light years away. However, for objects at such distances we should take into account the expansion of the Universe during the time it took their light to reach us. Doing that shows that the galaxy was about 425 to 430 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, about 435 million years ago (the difference between the two numbers being due to the expansion of the intervening space during the light-travel time). Given that and its apparent size of about 1.8 by 1.3 arcmin (from the images below), the galaxy is about 225 thousand light years across.

NGC 7488 (= PGC 70539)
Discovered (Aug 11, 1864) by
Albert Marth
A 14th-magnitude lenticular galaxy (type E/S0?) in Pisces (RA 23 07 48.9, Dec +00 56 28)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7488 (= GC 6123, Marth #522, 1860 RA 23 00 38, NPD 89 49) is "very faint, very small, stellar".
Physical Information: Apparent size about 0.6 by 0.5 arcmin.

NGC 7489 (= PGC 70532)
Discovered (Sep 14, 1863) by
William Lassell
Probably also observed by Albert Marth
A 13th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type Scd?) in Pegasus (RA 23 07 32.5, Dec +22 59 52)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7489 (= GC 6124, Lassell, Marth #523, 1860 RA 23 00 40, NPD 67 47) is "faint, small, round".
Discovery Notes: Although #523 in Marth's list, that entry states that Lassell was the observer at the time this object was first observed; but the entry also states that its existence and position were verified by subsequent observations, almost certainly by Marth. There is a slight uncertainty in the actual date of discovery, which is listed as 1863.70, as all other objects with that date appear to be listed as being observed on Sep 13, 1863; but perhaps it was observed after midnight, in which case it would have been the next day. In any event, the 14th is the date in Steinicke's database, and for that reason, it is the date shown above.
Physical Information: Apparent size about 2.1 by 1.1 arcmin.

A 14th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type Sbc?) in Aquarius (RA 23 08 06.0, Dec -05 57 59)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7491 (Stephan list XII (#94), 1860 RA 23 00 51, NPD 96 43.3) is "very faint, small, round, a very little brighter middle".
Physical Information: Apparent size about 1.0 by 0.7 arcmin.

NGC 7492 (= GCL 125)
Discovered (Sep 20, 1786) by
William Herschel
Also observed (Oct 15, 1830) by John Herschel
Also observed (Dec 18, 1902) by Isaac Roberts
An 11th-magnitude globular cluster (type XII) in Aquarius (RA 23 08 26.7, Dec -15 36 39)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7492 (= GC 4896 = JH 2208 = WH III 558, 1860 RA 23 01 02, NPD 106 22.6) is "extremely faint, large, between two double stars". The second IC notes "is a cluster of extremely faint stars (Roberts)".
Discovery Notes: Roberts' observation was a photograph of 90 minutes exposure taken with a 20-inch aperture reflecting telescope.
Physical Information: Apparent size of central core about 4 arcmin, but a fainter halo extends another arcmin or so in all directions. The distance of the cluster is about 85 thousand light years, so its core is about 100 light years across, and its outer halo about 150 light years. The globular is moving toward us at about 200 km/sec, which is a "real" radial velocity, as the Universal expansion has no effect on even outlying members of our galaxy. (Note about the high-resolution image of the cluster at bottom: This image is posted on or linked from several online catalogs of open and globular clusters, but with no indication of its original source. As a result, its copyright status is unclear. I am attempting to determine where it came from, so I can request permission to keep the image on this site. If you know where it came from, please let me know. Once I determine the original source and obtain (or do not obtain) permission to leave the image as-is, this note will be deleted and if need be the image as well.)

NGC 7496 (= PGC 70588)
Discovered (Sep 5, 1834) by
John Herschel
An 11th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SBb?) in Grus (RA 23 09 46.9, Dec -43 25 39)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7496 (= GC 4897 = JH 3973, 1860 RA 23 01 56, NPD 134 10.6) is "pretty bright, considerably large, a little extended, very gradually brighter middle equal to 13th magnitude star".
Physical Information: Apparent size 3.3 by 3.1? arcmin. (Note concerning the Faulkes Telescope Project image below: This image was posted on a commercial forum by Oliver Tunnah, the person who took it. Under normal circumstances, if the image were copyrighted, there would be some notice to that effect. There was no such notice, so it is probably legal to use it on a non-commercial site such as this one, as long as credit is given where credit is due; hence my decision to post it on a temporary basis, with a link to the original posting. However, I am also attempting to contact Mr. Tunnah and FTP, to see whether that is correct and if not, to request permission to keep the post as-is. If I obtain such permission, this note will be removed; if I do not, the image will be removed. In the meantime, anyone wishing to use the image on any other site (particularly a commercial site) should seek such permission as well.)

PGC 70687 (= "NGC 7496A")
Not an NGC object but listed here since sometimes called NGC 7496A
A 14th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SB(s)m?) in
Grus (RA 23 12 23.4, Dec -43 46 43)
Physical Information: Apparent size about 1.4 by 0.7 arcmin. The star-forming regions on the western side of the galaxy are sometimes called "NGC 7496B", but this designation is not recognized by any standard database, and in any event the regions are almost certainly part of PGC 70687, and giving them a separate designation merely confuses the situation.
