PGC 3507 (=
IC 62)
Discovered (Dec 2, 1893) by Stephane Javelle
A magnitude 14.1 spiral galaxy (type Sbc?) in Pisces (RA 00 58 44.0, Dec +11 48 29)
For anything else, see IC 62

PGC 3550 (=
IC 64)
Discovered (Dec 5, 1893) by Stephane Javelle
A magnitude 14.0 lenticular galaxy (type (R)S0/a? pec?) in Pisces (RA 00 59 24.5, Dec +27 03 32)
For anything else, see IC 64

PGC 3606 (=
IC 66)
Discovered (Nov 12, 1890) by Guillaume Bigourdan
A magnitude 14.1 spiral galaxy (type Sa?) in Pisces (RA 01 00 32.4, Dec +30 47 50)
For anything else, see IC 66

PGC 3620 (=
NGC 341, and with PGC 3627 = Arp 59)
Discovered (Oct 21, 1881) by Édouard Stephan
A magnitude 13.0 spiral galaxy (type SAB(r)bc?) in Cetus (RA 01 00 45.8, Dec -09 11 09)
For anything else, see NGC 341

PGC 3627 (= "NGC 341B" and with
NGC 341 = Arp 59)
A magnitude 15.8 irregular galaxy (type Irr?) in Cetus (RA 01 00 47.7, Dec -09 11 16)
Located at the end of one arm of NGC 341, which see for images. Because of its association with that galaxy, sometimes mistakenly called "NGC 341B". For anything else, see PGC 3627.

PGC 3635 (=
IC 65)
Discovered (Sep 25, 1890) by Lewis Swift
A magnitude 12.9 spiral galaxy (type SAB(s)bc?) in Andromeda (RA 01 00 55.8, Dec +47 40 53)
For anything else, see IC 65

PGC 3666 (=
IC 69 = PGC 1929122)
Discovered (Nov 8, 1866) by Truman Safford
A magnitude 13.7 spiral galaxy (type SABbc? pec) in Pisces (RA 01 01 23.6, Dec +31 02 27)
For anything else, see IC 69

PGC 3842 (=
IC 73)
Discovered (Aug 20, 1892) by Stephane Javelle
A magnitude 14.6 spiral galaxy (type SABbc?) in Pisces (RA 01 04 53.1, Dec +04 46 02)
For anything else, see IC 73

PGC 3897 (=
IC 74)
Discovered (Aug 19, 1892) by Stephane Javelle

For anything else, see IC 74

PGC 3959 (=
IC 75)
Discovered (Oct 17, 1892) by Stephane Javelle
A magnitude 13.9 spiral galaxy (type (R)S(rs)ab? pec) in Pisces (RA 01 07 11.6, Dec +10 50 14)
For anything else, see IC 75

PGC 3974 (= PGC 1514550 = UGC 685)
A magnitude 13.9 spiral galaxy (type SAm) in
Pisces (RA 01 07 22.4, Dec +16 41 02)
Physical Information: PGC 3974's recessional velocity of 155 km/sec is too small to yield a reliable Hubble distance, but redshift-independent distance estimates range from 15 to 20 million light years, and the HST press release accompanying its image below lists a distance of 15 million light years. Given that and its apparent size of 2.25 by 1.3 arcmin (from the images below, counting the extended scattering of faint stars beyond its central region), the dwarf spiral is about 10 thousand light years across.
