M110 NGC205 - Galaxy – Moderate
Best seen using moderate sized telescopes as a fuzzy blob to the NW of M31

NGC404 “Mirachs Ghost” - Galaxy – Moderate
Light from Beta Andromedae tends to drown out this galaxy which can be seen face on. The star is just 7 arc-minutes away from the galaxy.

NGC891 Caldwell 23 - Galaxy – Moderate

NGC7662 Blue Snowball Nebula - Planetary Nebula – Moderate
This is a fine planetary nebula which can be seen with but is challenging for binoculars. Moderate sized scopes on a medium power will reveal much detail. Using a variety of filters will bring out even more detail
