Description: AGC 347 is alike AGC 262 and 426 (Perseus I) one of the brightest galaxy clusters for autumn nights. It is located in the neighborhood of NGC 891 in Andromeda and contains 23 visible galaxies. Among them many bright NGC objects scattered over a large field. AGC 347 shows no significant central region - differently from AGC 262 and 426. The Markarian galaxy MKN 1176 is identical with CGCG 539-31. A single MAC confirmed, two more suspected.
