Deep Space Objects - NGCHome

This covers objects outside the Solar System; Nebulae and Galaxies and Clusters, in the NGC catalogue.  The order is chronological rather than numerical.  I'm sorry that makes it harder to find a given object, but the thumbnails might help.  If the object is also in the Messier catalogue, it appears on my Messier page.
