Hey Doug

NGC 5078 is actually easy to spot from my suburban location with the 10", altough it appears MUCH smaller than the big impressive oval in the MSA would suggest. Worth a try from the city. It has a small companion - IC 879 but it is very faint and out of reach for a 4".

A few decent galaxies lie nearby - NGC 5101, 5061, 5084 and 5068.
