Located between the stars Chort and Zosma are a beautiful little pair of elliptical galaxies. They are not quite twins; H.II.50 (above left) appears to have somewhat a more prominent nucleus. But all the same they make an attractive, easy-to-spot duet. Also in the field of view is a dim, 14th magnitude galaxy, but this one I have yet to spot.
