The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a 15.5 mag galaxy. Their coded description reads SLEL&DIF,BM,COM1'NFO.
Paul Brown (1992, Webb Society Quarterly Journal, 89, 8-11, 'An Unlisted Galaxy in the NGC 6107 Galaxy Group') observing with a 10-inch f/5.5 and a 16-inch f/4.5 notes: " .. a second object emerged within the same low-power field [as NGC 6107], 2.6 arcmin preceding. Where x80 showed it stellar, x260 revealed a round nebula, considerably more diffuse than NGC 6107 but equally large. It was weakly concentrated with a very little brighter core area."
