NGC 7767. Though both Reinmuth and CGCG suggested that this is identical to IC 1511 (which see), it is a different object. Bigourdan has measurements of both objects which show that I1511 is a star, while this is a galaxy with a star superposed about 15 arcsec southwest of the nucleus (Bigourdan actually measured this star rather than the galaxy itself).
Lord Rosse's diagram is useful in sorting out the identities of the other galaxies in the field, NGC 7765, N7766, and N7768.
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a 14.0 mag galaxy. Their coded description reads EON,BM,*CLOSE SPR.
