IC 1535 - Spiral Galaxy in Andromeda

Above the horizon.  Circumpolar today
Altitude: 60.7°   Azimuth: 281.8°   Direction: West-North-West

IC 1535 is a Spiral Galaxy in the Andromeda constellation. IC 1535 is situated north of the celestial equator and, as such, it is more easily visible from the northern hemisphere.

The image below is a photograph of IC 1535 from the Digitized Sky Survey 2 (DSS2 - see the credits section) taken in the red channel. The area of sky represented in the image is 0.5x0.5 degrees (30x30 arcmins).
