NGC 4419N12h 26m 54s15° 3' 0" C-11LBRP2011 6 6 22:40:20A lovely galaxy, like a miniature M 81. Burnham: SB?, Simbad: SBa.
NGC 4421N12h 27m 0s15° 28' 0" C-11LBRP2012 2 20 22:24:46A small, faint smudge. Perhaps I'm only seeing the nucleus of an Sc? Listed as a 12.6mv S0 by atlasoftheuniverse.com. I concur, it is dimmer than 11.6v.

NGC 4446N12h 28m 12s13° 55' 0" C-8P2008-05-04 22:30:00 This galaxy, along with NGC 4447 which is almost on top of it, (perhaps they are interacting?) is the faintest galaxy I saw tonight. They were but a persistent glowing patch of sky background. HNGC lists them as 13.8 and 14 mv. I only located them because of their proximity to NGC 4459, and it's 8 mv star just south east.
NGC 4448N12h 28m 12s28° 37' 0" C-11LBRP2011 6 6 22:45:19An elongated spiral with a bright nucleus. Nice. Burnham: Sb.
NGC 4449N12h 28m 12s44° 6' 0" C-8B2007-06-06 22:00:00A faint brightening of the sky glow. I was suprised I saw this irregular at all!

NGC 4457N12h 29m 0s3° 34' 0" C-8Little Tycho2011 5 10 1:19:32A very faint smudge, in tonight's hazy skies. Best in the 18, and found only with the finder chart.
NGC 4459N12h 29m 0s13° 59' 0" C-8P2008-05-04 22:30:00 A bright spiral that blinks with the 8.1 mv K star just south east of it. When you look at the star the galaxy vanishes, when you look away from it, the galaxy appears to be only a bit dimmer than the star. The "blinking" galaxy!
NGC 4461N12h 29m 0s13° 11' 0" C-8P2008-05-04 22:30:00AKA NGC 4443. A small, bright elliptical (Burnham: S0). A pair with the fainter ngc 4458.
NGC 4458N12h 29m 0s13° 15' 0" C-8P2008-05-04 22:30:00Makes a pair with the brighter ngc 4461. HNGC lists this as 11.8 mv, but it looks fainter than that. It also lists it as an elliptical, but it was too faint for me to guess.
NGC 3N12h 29m 6s2° 3' 0" C-8P2007-05-11 23:00:00Looks like a 12th Magnitude star. Too faint to detect the blue color. This needed the AAVSO finder chart to identify it.
NGC 3N12h 29m 6s2° 3' 0"C-11SAO2013 3 14 3:48:55A 12.5mv star. The 14.9mv star just sw of it was easily seen.
NGC 4464N12h 29m 24s8° 10' 0" C-8P2008-05-28 23:00:00 A faint, fuzzy starlike object. Brighter than 4467. Not in Burnham, but HRNGC lists it as a spiral. In the sloan survey photo, it looks like an S0.
NGC 4468N12h 29m 30s14° 3' 0" C-8P2008-05-04 22:30:00An extremely faint galaxy, HNGC lists it as a 12.7 mv elliptical.
NGC 4469N12h 29m 30s8° 45' 0" C-8P2008-05-28 23:00:00A medium bright streak, in position angle approximately 70°. Burnham lists it as an edge on Sb.
NGC 4467N12h 29m 30s8° 0' 0" C-8P2008-05-28 23:00:00 An extremely faint smudge. HRNGC lists it as 14th mv! Surprising I saw it at all, but it's an elliptical, and these look like fuzzy stars, rather than extended nebulae.
NGC 4470N12h 29m 36s7° 49' 0" C-8P2008-05-28 23:00:00A faint, but distinct patch. A face on S0? Not in Burnham. NASA extragalactic Database lists it an an Sa(?).

NGC 4535N12h 34m 18s8° 12' 0" C-8P2008-05-28 23:00:00 A large, dim, globular. The stars were resolved with averted vision. Wrong! It's a face on SBc spiral (Burnham)! The patchy arms looked starlike.
NGC 4531N12h 34m 18s13° 5' 0" C-8P2008-05-04 22:30:00A very faint smudge. HNGC lists it as "faint", 11.7 mv. In general, spirals without bright middles are hard to see.

NGC 4554N12h 35m 42s11° 11' 0" C-8P2008-05-04 22:30:00A very faint glow. WikiSky shows a pair of 13th mv stars here. Probably an NGC error, and a very easy one to make. I saw but a glow, with averted vision, and no double star. Other internet sources confirm that this is indeed an NGC error.
NGC 4552N12h 35m 42s12° 33' 0" C-8P2008-05-04 22:30:00A small, bright round elliptical with a bright middle. AKA M 89.

NGC 4564N12h 36m 24s11° 26' 0" C-8P2008-05-04 22:30:00 A small, uniformly bright spot. It looks like a faint planetary nebula. Burnham lists it as an E6, and its WikiSky photo confirms this. The nucleus does look round. Next time more power than 36x needs to be applied.
NGC 4568N12h 36m 36s11° 14' 0" C-8P2008-05-04 22:30:00 A pair of galaxies, with NGC 4567 an arc minute to the north. At 36x, these looked like a single galaxy. They need to be re-examined with higher power.

I suspect that the two are interacting, but photos do not show any significant distortion of the outer envelopes. A chance line up? Hard to tell. I saw both galaxies as spirals, but only NGC 4647 is. Burnham lists it as an Sc.
