NGC 6923 Faint, small, little elongated 1.5 X 1 PA 75, somewhat brighter in the middle at 135X. There are two 12th mag stars which bracket the galaxy on either side.

NGC 6925 Pretty faint, pretty large, much elongated 3 X 1 in PA 0, much brighter in the middle with an almost stellar nucleus at 135X. Averted vision makes it longer.

NGC 6947 Extremely faint, small, round, very little brighter in the middle, only seen with averted vision, never held steady at 150X.

NGC 6958 Pretty bright, pretty small, round, pretty gradually much brighter in the middle at 135X. There are four obvious stars to the west of this galaxy.

NGC 7057 Extremely faint, small, round, averted vision only.

NGC 7060 Very faint, pretty small, little elongated 1.2X1 in PA 120, not brighter in the middle at 150X.

IC 5039 Very faint, pretty small, much elongated 2.5 X 1 in PA 165, very little brighter in the middle, just a dim streak at 135X.

IC 5105 Faint, small, little elongated 1.2X1 in PA 30, very little brighter in the middle at 150X.
