NGC 305 is an asterism in the constellation Pisces, discovered on October 17, 1825 by the British astronomer John Herschel.

It is uncertain if the stars are related to one another, but the brightest member, TYC 608-677-2, is a G3V main-sequence star 1330 ± 400 light years away, with a proper motion of 13.8 ± 2.0 mas/yr, or 26.7 ± 4.0 km/s relative to the Sun.
