0B x16, very prominent, stands out from the star background but clearly fainter
than NGC 104 (47 Tuc), quite condensed, suddenly bright towards the centre, DC=6, hint of tail visible but difficult in light of bright gibbous moon [COO02].
This is the first image of a companion so faint--120 times fainter

At the other end of the scale are the fainter

Its brightest stars trace a conspicuous equilateral triangle with a clutch of fainter

Small 'blobs' of solar wind tracked by the team were more than 10 billion times fainter

The images revealed a second, even fainter

We see her in profile, with her fainter

Also in Aquarius is the planet Uranus (RA 22 16 47 Dec--11 3150), this is obviously much fainter
but can still be seen as a blue/green disk in telescopes with aperture 6- inch or larger.
