IC 2400 (= PGC 24714)
Discovered (Feb 14, 1896) by
Stephane Javelle (1054)
A magnitude 14.3 spiral galaxy (type SABbc?) in Lynx (RA 08 47 59.1, Dec +38 04 08)
Based on a recessional velocity of 7985 km/sec, IC 2400 is about 370 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 0.8 by 0.3 arcmin, it is about 85 thousand light years across.

IC 2431 (= PGC 25476)
Discovered (Feb 24, 1896) by
Stephane Javelle (1068)
A magnitude 14.0 group of galaxies in Cancer (RA 09 04 34.8, Dec +14 35 43)
Obviously at least a triplet of interacting galaxies, and listed as a quartet in most references. Based on a recessional velocity of 14950 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that the group is about 700 million light years away. However, for objects at such distances we should take into account the Universal expansion during the time it took their light to reach us. Doing that shows that the group was about 655 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, about 675 million years ago (the difference between the two numbers being due to the expansion of the intervening space during the light-travel time). Given that and its apparent size of 0.7 by 0.65 arcmin, the group spans about 135 thousand light years.
