Galaxies NGC 5005, NGC 5033

Object Description

The three galaxies NGC 5005, NGC 5014 and NGC 5033 were discovered on 1 May 1785 by the German-British astronomer William Herschel with his self-built 18.7" f/12.8 reflecting telescope in Slough, England. The small galaxy NGC 5002 was not discovered until 80 years later on 27 April 1865 by the German astronomer Heinrich Louis d'Arrest with the 11" f/17.5 Merz refractor at the Copenhagen Observatory.
