Indy's Object Catalog
NGC Deep Sky Objects Page 2
Compiled in the 1880's, the New General Catalogue (NGC) is a well-known catalogue of 7,840 deep sky objects in astronomy. The NGC was later expanded with two Index Catalogues (IC I in 1896 & IC II in 1905), adding a further 5,326 objects.

These four pages offer an interesting selection of over 400 deep sky objects from the catalog, including galaxies, planetary nebulae, open clusters, and globular clusters.
