Description: The weather was pretty good but I felt very sick during the observing so this was the only sketch in this night. NGC 7674 & NGC 7675 are pretty bright round galaxies. NGC 7674 has a stellar core and a little companion NGC 7674A involved. PGC 214960 is a N-S elongated galaxy on the west.
