NGC 7331, and Companions

Here is a bright lens-shaped galaxy with a number of companion galaxies. I could only see three of them on the night that I made this sketch. The NGC/IC Project web page shows that there are approximately ten companion galaxies in this field-of-view, how many can you see? Any night that you can see the companion galaxies is a good night for observing Stephan’s Quintet, and that is exactly what I did next on this night.
