NGC 247 in the constellation of Cetus

This chart shows the location of the galaxy NGC 247 within the constellation of Cetus. This map shows most of the stars visible to the unaided eye under good conditions and the galaxy itself is marked as a red oval in a circle. Through a moderate-sized amateur telescope this galaxy appears quite large, but dim, and needs a dark sky to be seen well.
