PGC 102500
A magnitude 16(?) spiral galaxy (type Sb?) in
Eridanus (RA 02 36 33.8, Dec -41 52 30)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 14400 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 102500 is about 670 million light years away. However, for objects at such distances we should take into account the expansion of the Universe during the time it took their light to reach us. Doing that shows that the galaxy was 630 to 635 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, about 650 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 about 0.45 by 0.1 arcmin, the galaxy is about 80 thousand light years across.

PGC 122500
A magnitude 17(?) galaxy (type S?) in
Grus (RA 22 08 31.4, Dec -44 24 46)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 21365 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 122500 is about 995 million light years away. However, for objects at such distances we should take into account the expansion of the Universe during the time it took their light to reach us. Doing that shows that the galaxy was about 915 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, about 945 to 950 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 about 0.2 by 0.2 arcmin, the galaxy is about 50 to 55 thousand light years across.

PGC 126762
A magnitude 17(?) lenticular galaxy (type (R)SB0/a?) in
Coma Berenices (RA 13 00 13.6, Dec +27 52 02)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 7450 km/sec (and H0 = 70 km/sec/Mpc), a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 126762 is about 345 million light years away. However, for objects at such distances we should take into account the expansion of the Universe during the time it took their light to reach us. Doing that shows that the galaxy was about 335 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, about 340 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 about 0.4 by 0.4 arcmin (from the images below), the galaxy is about 35 to 40 thousand light years across. Since the Coma Cluster is about 320 million light years away, PGC 126762 is almost certainly a member of the cluster.
