NGC4618 is the larger and brighter one and could be well seen with averted vision as roundish brightening. The galaxy appeared brighter towards the north edge. NGC4625 in comparison is much fainter, also roundish, evenly bright and barely visible with averted vision.

On the DSS image the connection of both galaxies is apparent. NGC5218 is a spiral (SBb), whereby NGC5216 is an elliptical galaxy of the type E0.

8" f/6, 200x, Bortle 5

120mm f/5, 100x, Bortle 3, SQM-L 21.3
I only classified this group as moderately difficult, because I could see a diffuse, roundish brightening near faint field stars with averted vision without any problems. I'm pretty sure, that this is NGC68 as brightest member of the group.

MODERATE
8" f/6, 171x, Bortle 3, NELM 6.4
Overall difficult group with 8 inch, which is embedded between faint field stars. NGC68 (brightest western) is brightest member and appeared at 171x roundish with slightly brighter center, held with averted vision. NGC71 (southeastern of NGC68) was glimpsed as roundish, diffuse brightening. NGC70 (northeastern of NGC68) I tried without any success.

DIFFICULT
12.5" f/4.5, 205x, Bortle 3, SQM-L 21.3
NGC68: Round, less condensed. Brightest and most obvious galaxy of the group.

Both galaxies already visible at 37x as compact brightening. At 96x evident with averted vision, roundish to slightly oval, slight brightening toward the middle.

NGC750 appeared round with brighter core. I meant to see this galaxy separated from its neighbour NGC751, but unsure and without dark space. NGC750 appeared interestingly somewhat more compact than NGC751 - maybe a mistake by myself!? However NGC750 was well visible with averted vision.

SQM-L 20.6: The level of difficulty is only related to the two brightest group members (NGC7578A/B). The other members might be too faint for 8 inch aperture. At 66x I could easily see with averted vision around NGC7578A/B a faint, evenly bright glow, which appeared slightly oval at higher magnification. At 171x I could fairly well see within this glow the two rather compact cores of NGC7578 A/B, which were clearly separated from each other. The core of NGC7578 B (northeastern of NGC7578 A) appeared a bit brighter and larger. I didn't looked for the other members of course.

Difficult. Nearly permanently held with averted vision as very compact, slightly elongated brightening, which is UGC6527 and maybe the two western galaxies PGC35615 and PGC35618. At 265x I thought to have seen two separate brightenings, but not for sure.

NGC4174 & NGC4175 appeared elongated, whereas NGC4174 is fairly compact. Both galaxies well seen with averted vision.

NGC4169 most easy, which can be seen with direct vision as an oval nebula with much brighter core. Smallest and second brightest regarding to high surface brightness is NGC4174: relatively small, elongated, apparent with averted vision. More difficult is NGC4175: Permanently held with averted vision as elongated nebula. Largest, but very faint NGC4173 not seen.

At 37x the two brightest members NGC5353 and NGC5354 are evident with averted vision and clearly separated from each other. At 100x NGC5353 appeared slightly oval with bright, distinct core, whereas NGC5354 appeared more roundish and evenly bright. Also well visible is NGC5350, which is largest member of the group. Already visible at 37x with averted vision as relatively large, roundish, rather faint brightening. At 100x the center was somewhat brighter. The much more fainter NGC5355 was well seen at 150x with averted vision as slightly elongated brightening. The faintest member is NGC5358: At 150x I could barely see this galaxy with averted vision as very compact, diffuse brightening, which was probably only the bright core area.

NGC6978 was obviously elongated with a brighter core, NGC6977 was smaller, roundish to slightly oval with somewhat brighter core. Between these two galaxies a star was apparent. NGC6975 was fainter and only visible with averted vision as roundish nebula with also somewhat brighter core. All three galaxies are arranged in a line with almost same distances. A nice view! The faintest member (PGC65612) wasn't visible due to problems with dew on the secondary mirror. With large aperture a very nice Hickson Group.

Wonderful, but more fainter group near NGC7331. NGC7318A/B appeared at 80x as oval, evenly bright nebula with averted vision and is brightest member. At 218x I could separate the cores of both galaxies with averted vision. NGC7320 was also fairly easily seen at 80x with averted vision, oval, relatively faint. NGC7317 is located nearby a 13.4m star and appeared at 150x as a very compact brightening. NGC7319 is the faintest member in this group and was visible at 150x as an extremely faint glow.

SQM-L 20.6: The level of difficulty is only related to the two brightest group members (NGC7578A/B). The other members might be too faint for 8 inch aperture. At 66x I could easily see with averted vision around NGC7578A/B a faint, evenly bright glow, which appeared slightly oval at higher magnification. At 171x I could fairly well see within this glow the two rather compact cores of NGC7578 A/B, which were clearly separated from each other. The core of NGC7578 B (northeastern of NGC7578 A) appeared a bit brighter and larger. I didn't looked for the other members of course, but the third brightest one (PGC70943) might be worth trying ;-)

SQM-L 20.5: Towards horizon the sky was unfortunately a bit hazy. At 109x the halo around the 9.43 mag star seemed to be a bit irregular, but I didn't saw the galaxy for sure. I also tried it at 50x and 75x. But I'm pretty sure, that the galaxy could be seen with this aperture under better conditions.

At 37x oval, slightly condensed, barely visible with direct vision. At 80x slight brightening toward the middle, elongated, without distinct core. The brighter core area appeared also elongated. The axis ratio was about 1:2 to 1:3. At 150x the galaxy seemed to be asymmetric and showed a brighter extension towards south.
