interesting object slightly north of these four

You’re looking at “the Box” - a grouping of galaxies.

at first, I thought it was one of the Hickson Compact Group associations ~ now you’ve said ‘the box’ that definitely rings a bell

Definitely but the one alrger galaxy appears to be in front of the three, so they counted as “non-interacting visual group”
