M-110 (NGC-205)

M-110 (NGC-205) is a large Type E-5 Elliptical galaxy located in the constellation of Andromeda. It lies just 25 arc minutes to the NE of M-31, the Andromeda Galaxy, and is easily seen in the same field with amateur telescopes. It was never officially logged or cataloged by Charles Messier, but was added to his catalog in the 20th century, due to the fact that he mentioned it and also published drawings of M-31 which showed M-110 in the same field.
