NGC catalogue LIST
« on: April 01, 2012, 03:08:04 am »
Welcome to the Galaxy Zoo's NGC-objects-in-numerical-order-list, a thread like no other.

Below you will find an image of every NGC object that is in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) footprint, 4.297 of them. This thread also includes non-SDSS images of about 25 percent of those galaxies that are outside the SDSS footprint, as well as both SDSS and non-SDSS images of several dozen galaxies.

In this thread, all the images are posted in the numerical order of the NGC list. The captions to all the SDSS images include the object's SDSS identification number, which links to the object's SDSS Explore Home page. On the SDSS Explore Home page there are links to vast quantities of information about the object in three more databases, NED (the NASA Extragalactic Database), SIMBAD (Set of Identifications, Measurements, and Bibliography for Astronomical Data) and ADS (Astrophysics Data System).

In this thread's index pages, all the images are listed in numerical order. If the object number links to a non-SDSS image, the source of the image(s) is noted next to the object number. Those object numbers with no source noted are all from the SDSS.

This thread is a work in progress, which is missing about three thousand images of NGC objects outside the SDSS footprint. Please click here  to send a personal message to the authors of this thread with comments, corrections, or links to additional images of NGC objects.

If this is your first visit to the Galaxy Zoo website, there is much, much more to it than this thread. If you want to learn more about the website, please visit the home page by clicking on "Galaxy Zoo" at the upper left. All are welcome to participate in the Galaxy Zoo project and the Galaxy Zoo Forum.

The index of NGC objects is posted in batches of 200. Clicking on one of the batches listed here will take you to a complete list of objects posted in that batch.

Our objective to to create a thread with one post for each NGC object, beginning with NGC 0001 and ending with NGC 7840. Unlike other threads, the posts will not be credited to individuals, but to the ctlgprjct collective. By posting collectively, everyone who posts to the thread will have the ability to edit every existing post in the thread.

If you do not have the ctlgprjct password, please do not post to this thread until further notice -- if you have an NGC object to post, please do so  here.

If you would like to join in this collective effort, please send a PM to either LankyYankee or egalaxy. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please send a message to egalaxy, and/or LankyYankee.

Anyone with the ctlgprjct password can edit a placeholder post by deleting the brackets and adding an SDSS image or images. If you do post an image, please format your post like the others in the thread. The main images of objects should have the grid on if there are multiple galaxies around it, so we can be sure the center galaxy is the NGC galaxy. Each SDSS image should include a link to a photometric object, either the center of the object, or a photometric object that links to the object's spectrum, or, in those few cases of objects that have no photometric object, the nearest photometric object. Please indicate, in parentheses, the number of the Data Release (DR#). All other images should include a link to that image's location on the Internet.

Any single post in this thread can include as many images and other items of information as the participants wish to add, such as non-SDSS images, images of a system or cluster to which a particular galaxy belongs, links to OOTDs about the object, and links to interesting additional sources of information about an object.
