Mission Of The Project

The NGC/IC Project is a collaborative effort between professional and amateur astronomers to correctly identify all of the original NGC and IC objects, starting with the original discoverer's notes and working forward in time to encompass the work of contemporary astronomers, both professional and amateur, such that the identity of each of the NGC and IC objects is known with as much certainty as we can reasonably bring to it from the existing historical record.

In so doing, we shall collect images for each object and assemble basic data for the objects -- positions, classifications, photometric parameters (magnitudes, diameters, position angles, colors, etc), and distances -- insofar as the data are accessible.
