IC 144)
A 15th-magnitude galaxy (type C?) in Cetus (RA 01 37 40.8, Dec -13 18 51)

PGC 6083 (=
NGC 648 = IC 146 = PGC 144217 = PGC 876776)
A 14th-magnitude lenticular galaxy (type E/S0?) in Cetus (RA 01 38 39.8, Dec -17 49 52)

PGC 6084 (=
IC 145)
A 15th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type S?) in Cetus (RA 01 38 38.5, Dec +00 44 29)

PGC 6164 (=
IC 147)
A 15th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type Sbc?) in Cetus (RA 01 39 59.4, Dec -14 51 46)

PGC 6241 (= ESO 245-1)
A 15th-magnitude lenticular galaxy (type (R')SB0/a?(s)) in
Phoenix (RA 01 41 31.0, Dec -46 12 53)

Based on a recessional velocity of 9145 km/sec, PGC 6241 is about 425 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 1.0 by 0.9 arcmin, it is about 125 thousand light years across. Used by the de Vaucouleurs Atlas of Galaxy Types as an example of galaxy type (R1R2')SAB(rl)a.
