MY SKETCHES OF ALL OBJECTS
The NGC is the New General Catalog of deep sky astronomical objects (outside of our solar system). It was compiled by J.L.E. Dryer and published in 1888.
Visually observing all 7000+ NGC objects is considered a “lifelong project” so I began in earnest in 2020 to complete it. I had already logged 3,782 targets during previous nights.
Seeing them is the fun part! I estimate 10-12 years to complete the project. Progress as of date listed:
|7/22/2023||OVERALL||FROM START (2020)|
|Total Objects Cataloged||7840|
|Non-Existent or Duplicates||518|
|Remaining Objects North of -30 declination||642||642|
