By Paul W. Hodge

This atlas presents an entire set of pictures of neighborhood team Galaxies and exhibits crucial items, together with many person stars and interstellar gadgets. gadgets pointed out in a few 2 hundred charts contain variable stars, globular megastar clusters, open megastar clusters, airborne dirt and dust clouds, and supernova remnants. every one galaxy is observed by way of an in depth bibliography. The atlas comes in handy for researchers, scholars, and beginner astronomers. The authors are affiliated with the college of Washington. there's no topic index.

1997). c SNR candidates are from Sabbadin (1979, identified with prefix S), D’Odorico, Dopita, and Benvenuti (1980, prefix DDB), and Gordon et al. (1998, prefix G). Gordon et al. (1998) cross-reference various identifications of the SNRs. d BCLMP 660 appears as a complete ring in Figure 7b of Courtès et al. (1987). We detect only a partial ring in our images. e SNR DDB 18 is contained within BCLMP 750. Gordon et al. (1998) do not identify it with G97, but we believe they are the same object.
