IC 750 (= PGC 37719)
Discovered (Apr 22, 1892) by
Rudolf Spitaler (47)
A magnitude 11.9 spiral galaxy (type Sab?) in Ursa Major (RA 11 58 52.0, Dec +42 43 20)
IC 750's recessional velocity of 700 km/sec is too small to yield an accurate Hubble expansion distance, presumably due to a substantial peculiar (non-Hubble-expansion) velocity, as it corresponds to a distance of less than 35 million light years, much less than redshift-independent distance estimates of 60 to 120 million light years. Given its apparent size of 2.55 by 1.3 arcmin, the Hubble expansion distance yields a size of about 25 thousand light years, which is probably too small for its regular structure. The redshift-independent distance estimates suggest a more reasonable size of 45 to 90 thousand light years.

A magnitude 13.2 spiral galaxy (type SBbc?) in Coma Berenices (RA 12 01 10.4, Dec +14 06 16)
Per Dreyer, IC 755 (Swift list VIII (#61), 1860 RA 11 53 58, NPD 75 05.7) is "most extremely faint, small, extended, between two stars". The position precesses to RA 12 01 08.8, Dec +14 07 32, just north of an edge-on spiral galaxy that fits the description, and the 12th-magnitude stars to its east and west seem to confirm the identification.

Stephane Javelle (750)
A magnitude 14.0 spiral galaxy (type Sb) in Coma Berenices (RA 12 27 08.8, Dec +16 19 33)
Listed as a member (VCC 973) of the Virgo Cluster, but not actually a member, as much further away. Based on a recessional velocity of 6620 km/sec, IC 792 is about 310 million light years away, in good agreement with redshift-independent distance estimates of 310 to 320 million light years. Given that and its apparent size of 1.4 by 0.45 arcmin, it is about 125 thousand light years across.

IC 793 (=
NGC 4445 = PGC 40987)
Discovered (Apr 24, 1865) by Heinrich d'Arrest (and later listed as NGC 4445)
Discovered (May 6, 1888) by Lewis Swift (and later listed as IC 793)
A magnitude 12.8 spiral galaxy (type Sab?) in Virgo (RA 12 28 16.0, Dec +09 26 11)
(See Corwin for slightly more thorough discussion before finalizing this entry.) Per Dreyer, IC 793 (Swift list VIII (#63), 1860 RA 12 20 54, NPD 79 47.7) is "extremely faint, small, much extended, 3 others in field". The position precesses to RA 12 28 00.8, Dec +09 25 47, but there is nothing there save for NGC 4445 (which see for anything else), a quarter minute of time to the east. The description (particularly "much extended") matches the NGC object, so it seems certain that is what Swift observed, or at least there appears to be no dispute about the identification as NGC 4445. The "3 others in field" are probably the nearest of the numerous NGC objects in the region, which is among the richest parts of the Virgo Cluster, but any guess as to which they might have been is mere speculation, as (per Corwin) Swift did not record positions for the other objects.
