 NGC 185
A first photograph of NGC 185 was obtained by James Edward Keeler with the Crossley Reflector of Lick Observatory between 1898 and 1900.
NGC 185 was recognized as a Local Group member galaxy, together with its neighbor NGC 147, by Walter Baade (1944), when he resolved them into stars with the 100-inch reflector on Mt. Wilson.

NGC 185 is a 9.2 magnitude satellite galaxy of the great Andromeda galaxy, M31.
It is located in Cassiopeia about 1 degrees east of NGC 147, another satellite of M31.
NGC 185 has a slightly higher surface brightness than nearby NGC 147--22.9 magnitudes per square arc second compared to 23.0 magnitudes per square arc second--which makes for a somewhat better view.

 NGC 147 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
NGC 147 is a Dwarf spheroidal galaxy about 2.7 million light-years away in the constellation Cassiopeia.
NGC is a member of the Local group of galaxies and a satellite galaxy of the Andromeda Galaxy (M31).
The membership of NGC 147 in the Local Group was confirmed by Walter Baade in 1944 when he was able to resolve the galaxy into individual stars with the 100 inch telescope at Mount Wilson near Los Angeles.

 NGC 185 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
NGC 185 is a dwarf elliptical galaxy about 2.08 million light-years away in the constellation Cassiopeia.
NGC 185 is a satellite galaxy of the famous Andromeda Galaxy (M31) and was discovered by William Herschel on November 30, 1787.
Unlike most dwarf elleptical galaxies, NGC 185 actually contains young stellar clusters and star formation proceeded at a low rate until the recent past.

For NGC 185, having a much rounder appearance on the sky, we produced models for different inclinations.
NGC 205 and 147 have a relatively isotropic velocity dispersion tensor within the region where the internal dynamics are strongly constrained by the data.
Our estimated inclination for NGC 185 is i≈ 50° because in that case the model has an intrinsic flattening close to the peak of the intrinsic shape distribution of dEs and it, like the best-fitting models for NGC 147 and 205, is nearly isotropic.

NGC 7789 is famous for being one of the densest open clusters north of the celestial equator.
NGC 147 and NGC 185, mentioned earlier as two of the Andromeda Galaxy's companion systems, are found within 1° of each other, but about 7° north of M31 over the border in Cassiopeia.
NGC 185, found about 1° due west of Omicron, is the easier of the pair to spot.

NGC 185 was a faint 3 x 2 arcmin oval with no sharp center and a gradual fade out to nothing from the center.
Luckily, NGC 2169 was quite interesting, with 17 stars in clumps and with a general parallelogram shape and bright corners.
I made it to NGC 2264 and could imagine that only part of the overall rich star pattern was part of the cluster, but could not see any hint of nebulosity just 35 degrees above the cities.

The observation of recent star formation in the galaxy NGC 187 contradicts the scheme established in the 1940s by the distinguished astronomer Walter Baade according to which dwarf elliptical galaxies are populated only by old stars.
Researchers at the IAC began to study NGC 185 in 1996, using the Jakobus Kapteyn Telescope (JKT) and Nordic Optical Telescope (NOT) at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory.
On the other hand, adds Aparicio, ‘the stellar clusters we have found are a trace of the last star formation episode that occurred in NGC 185, hundreds of millions of years ago (in comparison, the age of the galaxy and its oldest stars is some 10 000 to 15 000 million years).

 The Star-Forming ISM of Two Nearby Dwarf Elliptical Galaxies   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
We present a study of the components of the interstellar medium (ISM) in NGC 185 and NGC 205, two dwarf elliptical companions of M31.
HI in NGC 185, and to a lesser extent in NGC 205, can be separated into broad (\sigma \approx13 km/s) and narrow (\sigma \approx3 km/s) components with different distributions and kinematics.
Comparison with CO spectra shows that the variations in gas dispersion from place to place in the galaxies are mostly due to differing amounts of nonthermal or turbulent broadening in the ISM.
