IC 1473 is a Lenticular Galaxy in the Constellation of Pegasus. It has a bright nucleus and is an infrared source.
The small galaxy to the upper right of IC 1473 is cataloged as "2MASXi J2311005+294003". It measures magnitude 17.6 in the Kopernik image. Since there is no red shift data on this galaxy there is no way of knowing if it is a background object or a small companion of IC 1473.
