Visual notes on the entire NGC
« on: December 02, 2017, 05:40:01 PM »
I've just updated my observing notes files on Adventures in Deep Space (www.astronomy-mall.com/Adventures.In.Deep.Space/) with some assistance from Mark Wagner. The latest iteration includes visual descriptions of every deep-sky object in the NGC (7840 entries) as well as 1500 more from the IC.  Some of you may find this helpful in preparing or comparing observations.

In addition, you'll find data on every object (coordinates, type, magnitude, size, position angle, etc.) as well as historical discovery information and a discussion of all contested NGC/IC identifications.

Just follow the link on the home page for "Steve Gottlieb's NGC Notes"

Your timing's good in putting this whole set out, with http://ngcicproject.org/ still flapping in the breeze.

An unbelievable resource, a historically corrected, visual-based NGC. Question is, Steve, is this really going to hang on you? I've seen different threads different places - what's ahead next for the NGC/IC project site?
