Bright galaxies

Map 7: North Equatorial 4
Ursa Major to Hercules
This map, like the last, is chock-full of bright galaxies. They mainly reside in the 38th-largest constellation, Canes Venatici, and in Coma Berenices, number 42 on the constellation-size list. In contrast, the 13th-largest constellation, Boötes, has far fewer deep-sky objects.
