NGC 5101 and 5078 in southern Hydra, and literally hundreds of distant friends. There is a nice cluster of distant orange galaxies about 20% of the way toward 8 o'clock from centre. 5101 is a delicate face-on spiral. 5078 is an edge-on spiral with branching dust lanes across the more orange centre, and interacting with a companion.
