Object name: M110
NGC 205 is also known as Messier 110 though the latter designation is debatable as it was never part of a listing Messier ever made. He discovered it on August 10, 1773. But he never put it on his list. It was added to the listing in 1966, 149 years after his death. It, like M32, is a satellite of M31, the Great Andromeda Galaxy, and is classified as E5 pec. Most elliptical galaxies are red in color but NGC 205 is unusual in that its core region is blue and full of faint dust pockets. A tidal tail connects it to the outskirts of M32 seen in the lower left corner of my image.
