I'd love to see that too, Rick. :)

Update: I see Rick's are in chronological order - Rick, if you like, you can copy mine and put it in at the right place, and I will delete this post.

This page from Wikipedia says it all. Its quite an old catalogue, but it is 'condensed'.
I hope you enjoy the images, courtesy of SDSS.

see. Here are some more; I'm about 2/3 of the way through.
