Reﬂector in Ireland, the largest ever built at this time, not to be surpassed until the completion of the 100-in. at Mt. Wilson. Many new, faint objects were found in the same eyepiece ﬁeld of existing objects. Nearly all of these new deep sky objects were galaxies. ’ The survey took 30 years to complete and the results were published in the Scientiﬁc Transactions of the Royal Dublin Society in 1880. The obstacles that were overcome included limited observations to within one hour of the central meridian and the poor climate in Ireland.
5°. 5 magnitude included in this catalog from another catalog called Catalog of Galaxies and of Clusters of Galaxies (CGCG, Zwicky et al. 1961–1968). A supplement to this catalog (UGCA) contains 444 objects of special interest south of the declination limit. Fritz Zwicky assembled the Catalog of Galaxies and of Clusters of Galaxies (CGCG) between 1961 and 1968, and it contains 9,134 galaxy clusters. This and the MCG (1962–1974, published by Vorontsov-Velyaminov) are two classic general catalogs of galaxies based on visual inspections of the POSS data.
Sadly, both his wife and son died within 11 days of the boy’s birth. The ﬁrst version of Messier’s own catalog was published in 1774 and included 45 entries, M1 to M45.
