AUSTRALIAN-ASTRONOMICAL OBSERVATORY PHOTOGRAPHS

GALAXIES
Searchable list, complete NGC/IC objects

The following is the full list of NGC/IC galaxies appearing on AAO colour photographs.
Most are of objects whose names do not appear in the image titles on the galaxies or on the
galaxy thumbnails pages. A complete list of all NGC/IC objects on AAO colour photographs
is also available. Searches in these lists can currently be made for NCG, IC and Messier
objects using your browser's find function.

The NGC or IC designation hotlinks will take you to more comprehensive information
about an individual galaxy.
