The constellation of the month


Watch the big image!
No Deep Sky Objects visible!


Latin: Pegasus (Peg)
English: Winged Horse Spanish: Pegaso
German: Pegasus French: Pégase
The extended autumn constellation Pegasus (the Winged Horse) is shown in the above photography. The big trapeze on the left hand side can be found easily by naked eye in the sky (see lines). In mid of October Pegasus culminates at about 21:30 local time (9:30 pm). The declination range is +5 to +35 degrees. Septembers Lacerta and last Novembers Andromeda are just above of Pegasus.

The field of Pegasus is very poor in Deep Sky Objects. The existing galaxies are too faint and too small to be seen clearly in the wide field photography. The Globular Cluster M 15 is out of the right image border, but can be seen in the photography of Equuleus.
