Object name: NGC4559
Designation(s): NGC4559, IC3592,
NGC 4559 is a very low surface brightness blue galaxy. You may see the trend here. I'd planned on imaging a bunch of these guys this winter but most have been lost due to the lousy weather all year. Being of low surface brightness they aren't good targets for nights with moonlight. This galaxy is in the constellation of Coma Berenices and isn't far from the Virgo Cluster. Though it appears this galaxy is not a member of this huge group of galaxies. Its distance is hard to determine. Based on a supernova seen in 1941 it would be about 20 to 30 million light-years away. Its redshift distance is about 50 million light-years based on NED data though I've seen NASA claim its redshift says it is only 35 million light-years away. They don't give their source, however. If 50 million is right then it could be a member of the Virgo Cluster after all. And you thought we knew our nearby neighborhood better than that.
