In this case, it is a supergiant "CD" type elliptical near or at the centre of AGC 3827. It is about a magnitude brighter than ESO 146-8 and I have seen it previously with 46cm. It has a R/V of +29980 and therefore lies nearly 1.4 billion light-years distant.

A 10' x 10' of ESO 146-5 is attached N is up and E is left.

Best,
