Description:
This galxy seemed faint and difficult to see, I was not certain that I had in fact seen it until I was able to confirm it's position using Skymap and a relevant DSS image, the chart I was using being a ten degree field seemed to show the galaxy lying south of Mag 10 TYC 2743-1755-1 but in the eyepiece I could only see something  southwest  and in between  that star and  Mag 12 TYC 2743-1185-1, Skymap and the DSS image confirmed that this was indeed the position of the Galaxy so I had indeed seen it.
