The low altitude of these galaxies in the horizon and the light pollution of my location made the photo processing of the raw photos a real challenge. I could find the objects only by Goto-telescope-control. Due to the light pollution both the galaxies and even the nearby stars were invisible(!) through the eyepiece on the 5 inches telescope.
