N7771 is at the left of this preview image, with N7770 below.  N7769 is the face on spiral.  All are perhaps 187 million light years distant and form at least a triplet.  The small edge on galaxy is likely part of the group.  If your monitor is adjusted correctly, the faint outer arms of N7769 show just above the background.
