M-58: With dimensions of about 5'x2', this is one of the larger galaxies in this region. It is spindle-shaped, oriented NE-SW, and has a broadly concentrated center. There is a relatively bright star nearby to the west.
M-61: This galaxy is a face-on spiral, about 6'x4', oriented NNE-SSW. It is fairly even in brightness except for a stellar nucleus and some faint mottlings on its eastern and western sides.
M-84,M86: These relatively bright galaxies are very similar in appearance, and are visible in the same low-power field of view. M-84 is round, about 3' in diameter, has a large 1' diameter core, and a stellar nucleus. M-86 is larger (about 4' in diameter), and fainter, and also has a stellar nucleus.
M-87: This is a very bright galaxy, about 4' in diameter, with a large core and non-stellar nucleus.
M-104: The Sombrero Galaxy. This is one of the finest showpiece objects in the sky. This beautiful edge-on galaxy is 8-10'x2', oriented E-W, and has an obvious central bulge, with a distinct dark lane running the length of the galaxy. This is an object which should not be missed.
NGC 4179: This galaxy is about 3'x1', extended NW-SE, with very thin tapered edges. It is sharply brighter to the center with a stellar core.
NGC 4753: Rather bright, this galaxy is about 4'x2.5', oriented ENE-WSW. It is broadly concentrated to the center, with a stellar nucleus. At times, I noticed dark markings at the NE side.
NGC 4762: This galaxy reminds me of a smaller version of the well known edge-on galaxy, NGC 4565. It is about 4'x0.7', oriented NE-SW, and averted vision hints at a dust lane.
