In 1936 Edwin Hubble used the term “The Local Group” identifying 11 or possibly 12 member galaxies. Of course the number has grown to nearly 60 now, with the last one being discovered in January this year, but not all by big ground-based or space telescope. Donatiello 1 was discovered by an amateur last year using just a 125mm refractor he had made up from bits of other telescopes.
