The galaxy isn't so well known because there are many famous galaxies being distributed around this star-field. However, it  has a diameter of 10 arc minutes and 10th magnitude, it's certainly worth seeing.  NGC4725 is a galaxy classified in so-called the "Bared galaxy"; it consists of bar-structure across the nuclei and a pair of arms surrounding them. The arms of NGC4725 are coiled up fairly tight, it seems that the arms surround the galaxy in circumference.
