We present results of CCD imaging in B, V of five late-type galaxies with radial velocities 350 km/s in the Canes Venatici cloud. Based on the photometry of their brightest blue stars we derived the following distances to the galaxies: 9.7 Mpc for NGC 4144, 4.5 Mpc for NGC 4244, 4.2 Mpc for NGC 4395, 2.9 Mpc for NGC 4449, and 8.2 Mpc for UGC 8331.
Key words: galaxies: distances / galaxies: NGC 4144; NGC 4244; NGC 4395; NGC 4449; UGC 8331
