Object name: PAL1
Palomar 1 is in Cepheus about 36 thousand light-years from us and 56,000 light-years from the center of our galaxy. It was discovered by George Abell in 1954 on the original Palomar Observatory Sky Survey plates. Some catalogs show it as a galaxy. The CGCG has this to say about it: "Highly resolved blue pygmy galaxy with possibly compact red nucleus and possible spiral structure. Estimated m(pg) = 17.2." The got the magnitude right but little else. At 79.6 degrees north declination it is one of the most northerly globulars known as most cluster around the core of our galaxy which is well below the celestial equator. In fact, most are too low for me to image from my latitude.
