We present large-scale CCD images of a dozen low surface brightness objects in the vicinity of giant Sc galaxy NGC 6946, which have been found recently on POSS-II copies. Six of them: UGC 11583, kk251, kk252, kkr55, kkr56, and kkr59 are dwarf irregular galaxies resolved into stars. We determined their distances from the luminosity of the brightest blue stars. The mean estimated distance to the NGC 6946 group is 5.9 +- 0.4 Mpc. Together with Cepheus 1, discovered before, the group consist of 8… Expand

TLDR
It is shown that many of these puzzling observations are predicted by one single relation — Milgrom’s law — involving an acceleration constant a0 on the order of the square-root of the cosmological constant in natural units. Expand
