Description: Many galaxies and a surprisingly faint NGC object. A lot of PGC galaxies only suspected due to relatively poor sky conditions. Objects no. 11, 12 and 13 are quite difficult. Positions of galaxies agree with their labeled positions on the MegaStar chart. Object no. 14 (IRAS 17118+7849) corresponds to PGC 59693.
