Description: NGC 4619 is quite bright N-S elongated galaxy, pretty bright and long core is also parallel. There is a faint (15.9 mag) supernova 2006ac visible on the north edge. The supernova was very difficult, I looked about 30 min until clouds came. During that time I got about five glimpses with averted vision. Some background stars might be missing because I concentrated on galaxy
