NGC 7700 (= PGC 71777)
Discovered (Nov 18, 1864) by
Albert Marth (584)
A 13th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type S0/a?) in Pisces (RA 23 34 30.2, Dec -02 57 12)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 5245 km/sec, NGC 7700 is about 245 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 2.0 by 0.4 arcmins, it is about 140 thousand light years across. Since it and NGC 7701 are about the same distance from us, they may be a gravitationally bound pair. (Note: Wikisky incorrectly labels NGC 7700 as NGC 7701, and vice-versa. The images on this page are correctly labeled.)

Discovered (Sep 20, 1784) by
William Herschel
A 14th-magnitude lenticular galaxy (type S0? pec) in Pisces (RA 23 34 31.5, Dec -02 51 18)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 5335 km/sec, NGC 7701 is about 250 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 0.8 by 0.5 arcmins, it is about 60 thousand light years across. Since it and NGC 7700 are about the same distance from us, they may be a gravitationally bound pair. (Note: Wikisky incorrectly labels NGC 7701 as NGC 7700, and vice-versa. The images on this page are correctly labeled.)

NGC 7706 (= PGC 71817)
Discovered (Oct 16, 1827) by
John Herschel
A 13th-magnitude lenticular galaxy (type S0? pec) in Pisces (RA 23 35 10.4, Dec +04 57 53)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 7707 (= John Herschel's GC 4988, 1860 RA 23 28 03, NPD 85 48.9) is "very faint, pretty small, 18th-magnitude star close to the south, northeast of 2", the other being NGC 7704. The position precesses to RA 23 35 10.4, Dec +04 57 31, about 0.4 arcmin west of the center of the galaxy and well within its outer limits, so the identification would be certain even without the reference to NGC 7704.
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 5635 km/sec, NGC 7706 is about 260 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 1.2 by 1.0 arcmin, it is about 90 thousand light years across. Probably gravitationally interacting with NGC 7704.

Historical Identification:
Physical Information: About 30 arcmin across?

NGC 7709 (= PGC 71828)
Discovered (Oct 21, 1886) by
Lewis Swift (6-97)
Also observed by Herbert Howe
Also observed by Guillaume Bigourdan
A 13th-magnitude lenticular galaxy (type SB0?) in Aquarius (RA 23 35 27.2, Dec -16 42 20)
Historical Identification: The second IC adds (per Bigourdan and Howe) "RA is 23 28 10, much extended 225 degrees".
Physical Information: Apparent size about 2.3 by 0.6? arcmin.

NGC 7710 (= PGC 71844)
Discovered (Sep 24, 1862) by
Heinrich d'Arrest
A 14th-magnitude lenticular galaxy (type S0?) in Pisces (RA 23 35 46.1, Dec -02 52 51)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: Apparent size about 1.2 by 0.5? arcmin.

NGC 7711 (= PGC 71836)
Discovered (Oct 14, 1784) by
William Herschel
A 12th-magnitude lenticular galaxy (type S0?) in Pegasus (RA 23 35 39.4, Dec +15 18 06)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: Apparent size about 2.6 by 1.3? arcmin.

NGC 7712 (= PGC 71850)
Discovered (1876) by
Wilhelm Tempel (I-53)
A 13th-magnitude elliptical galaxy (type E1?) in Pegasus (RA 23 35 51.5, Dec +23 37 06)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: Apparent size about 0.9 by 0.8? arcmin.

NGC 7713 (= PGC 71866)
Discovered (Oct 4, 1836) by
John Herschel
An 11th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SB(r)d?) in Sculptor (RA 23 36 15.3, Dec -37 56 20)
Historical Identification: The second IC says "In NPD for 13 arcmin read 43 arcmin. Misprint in the GC".
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 690 km/sec, NGC 7713 should be about 32 million light years away. For such close objects peculiar (non-Hubble expansion) velocities are often a substantial part of their radial velocity, but in this case the value is in good agreement with redshift-independent distance estimates of 27 to 40 million light years. Given that and its apparent size of 4.5 by 1.8 arcmin, the galaxy is about 40 thousand light years across.

PGC 71910 (= PGC 71912 = "NGC 7713A")
Not an NGC object but listed here because often called NGC 7713A
A 13th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SB(r)c?) in
Sculptor (RA 23 37 08.7, Dec -37 42 54)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 3010 km/sec, PGC 71910 is about 140 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 1.8 by 1.4 arcmin, it is about 75 thousand light years across. Although in roughly the same part of the sky as NGC 7713, its much greater distance means that PGC 71910 has no relationship to the other galaxy.

NGC 7714 (= PGC 71868, and with
NGC 7715 = Arp 284)
Discovered (Sep 18, 1830) by John Herschel
A magnitude 12.5 spiral galaxy (type SB(s)b pec?) in Pisces (RA 23 36 14.1, Dec +02 09 17)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: NGC 7714 is a starburst galaxy, with extended arms consisting of clouds of gas and stars flung into space by its interaction with NGC 7715. Based on a recessional velocity of 2800 km/sec, it is about 130 million light years away, in reasonable agreement with a redshift-independent distance estimate of 120 million light years. Given that and its apparent size of about 1.9 by 1.4, it is about 70 thousand light years across (this does not include the extended arms, which cover 2.4 arcmin, or about 90 thousand light years). NGC 7715 is probably a spiral galaxy that passed close to NGC 7714, stripping away a considerable portion of its original gas and stars, and severely distorting both galaxies; if the near-miss had been a more direct collision, NGC 7714 might have ended up as a "ring" galaxy.

NGC 7715 (= PGC 71878, and with
NGC 7714 = Arp 284)
Discovered (Nov 4, 1850) by Bindon Stoney
A magnitude 14.2 irregular galaxy (type Im(s)? pec) in Pisces (RA 23 36 21.7, Dec +02 09 23)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: Based on its 2770 km/sec recessional velocity, NGC 7715 is about 130 million light years away, in reasonable agreement with a redshift-independent distance estimate of 120 million light years, and (as must be the case) the same distance as its obvious companion, NGC 7714 (which see for images). Given that and its apparent size of about 2.7 by 0.4 arcmin, it is about 100 thousand light years across. NGC 7715 is probably a spiral galaxy that passed close to NGC 7714, stripping away a considerable portion of its original gas and stars, and distorting both galaxies; if the near-miss had been a more direct collision, NGC 7714 might have ended up as a "ring" galaxy.

NGC 7719 (= PGC 71961)
Discovered (Aug 11, 1885) by
Francis Leavenworth (I-264)
Also observed by Herbert Howe
A 14th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type Sab?) in Aquarius (RA 23 38 02.6, Dec -22 58 29)
Historical Identification: The second IC lists a corrected RA (per Howe) of 23 30 43.
Physical Information: Apparent size about 0.9 by 0.7? arcmin. Supposedly accompanied by a 16th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type S??) of apparent size 0.2 by 0.1 arcmin, about 0.2 arcmin south of the center of NGC 7719 (in other words, the bright blob immediately below it in the images below), but whether (a) that is even a galaxy is uncertain, and (b) even if so, whether it has any relationship to NGC 7719 is very suspect.

NGC 7720 (= PGC 71985)
Discovered (Sep 10, 1784) by
William Herschel
A 12th-magnitude elliptical galaxy (type E2?) in Pegasus (RA 23 38 29.3, Dec +27 01 52)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: Apparent size about 1.6 by 1.3? arcmin. Apparently accompanied by a 15th-magnitude compact galaxy (type C??) just northeast of the nucleus of the galaxy (at RA 23 38 29.5, Dec +27 02 05, apparent size 0.2 by 0.2? arcmin), but whether the two are truly close or merely overlapping images from the cluster of galaxies that fills the region near them cannot be determined.

William Herschel
A 12th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SA(s)c?) in Aquarius (RA 23 38 48.6, Dec -06 31 04)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 2015 km/sec, NGC 7721 is about 95 million light years away, in good agreement with redshift-independent distance estimates of 60 to 90 million light years. Given that and its apparent size of 3.5 by 1.4 arcmin, it is about 95 thousand light years across.

NGC 7726 (probably(?) = PGC 72024)
Discovered (Aug 8, 1886) by
Lewis Swift (4-98)
A 14th-magnitude spiral galaxy (SB(s)b?) in Pegasus (RA 23 39 11.9, Dec +27 06 54)
Historical Identification: (The NGC identification is apparently somewhat controversial. For instance, a Wikisky search for NGC 7726 incorrectly shows a faint spiral galaxy just to the east of NGC 7720 (which, whatever it should be called, is not NGC 7726); a search for PGC 72024 shows the correct PGC object, but whether that is NGC 7726 requires more study.)
Physical Information: Apparent size of PGC 72024 is about 1.5 by 0.6? arcmin.

Discovered (Nov 27, 1785) by William Herschel
An 11th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SBa? pec) in Aquarius (RA 23 39 53.7, Dec -12 17 34)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: Apparent size about 4.5 by 3.5? arcmin (not counting the outer arms, which cover nearly 6 arcmin). Apparently two interacting spiral galaxies, which collided about a billion years ago (based on the age of star clusters formed in the collision) and should "soon" (after another billion years or so) settle down to what appears to be a single galaxy.
