the large elliptical is in the NGC catalogue (2663), so it’s a well known small grouping about 100 m l.ys away…

I was just talking about - a large filamentation sityuated in and around Argo Navis (an extinct constellation)

I think we have to be a bit careful with saying a galaxy is near a constellation. It might look like that from here but galaxies are intrinsically extragalactic and constellations are intragalactic. They just line up when viewed from this angle.
