MCG-1-24-1 (GLX)

DSS
© DSS II (red) - 8×8'
Name: MCG-1-24-1, UGCA150
Type: GLX
Constellation: Hya
Coordinates: 09h10m49.46s / -08°53'26.51"
Brightness / Size: v11.3 mag / 5.3x0.9'
120mm f/5, 109x, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.0
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.

FAILED
8" f/6, 80x, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.0
SQM-L 20.5: At 80x obviously oval / slightly elongated shape (NE-SW), getting somewhat brighter toward the middle. At 150x the galaxy appeared very elongated. At both magnifications quite easily seen with averted vision.
MODERATE

NGC2718 (GLX)

DSS
© DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: NGC2718, UGC4707, H2.557
Type: GLX
Constellation: Hya
Coordinates: 08h58m50.46s / +06°17'35.46"
Brightness / Size: v11.8 mag / 2.1x2.1'
8" f/6, 150x, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.0
SQM-L 20.6: Fairly faint, less condensed, roundish to slightly oval with declining edges.
MODERATE

NGC2917 (GLX)

DSS
© DSS II (red) - 5×5'
Name: NGC2917, UGC5098
Type: GLX
Constellation: Hya
Coordinates: 09h34m26.86s / -02°30'14.90"
Brightness / Size: v13.6 mag / 1.3x0.4'
8" f/6, 218x, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.1
SQM-L 20.3: Glimpsed at 150x as slightly oval brightening. At 218x I could held this galaxy with averted vision, but still very faint, slightly elongated.
