IC Objects in Gemini - The Night Sky Atlas

The Night Sky Atlas logo image

Entries from The Index Catalog of Nebulae and Star Clusters (IC), revised version by Wolfgang Steinicke, grouped by constellation and by catalog number. All IC object entries that refer to a verified object are listed with selected data. Each object has a link to its atlas location via its revised IC catalog number.

The night sky atlas creates images of any part of the night sky, allowing easy location of any object. Detailed chart images show all stars visible to the naked eye, the constellations, Messier objects, and names of the brightest stars. Data sources: Bright Star Catalog from the Astronomical Data Center, star names list from Steven Gibson, all-sky Milky Way image by Axel Mellinger. The data used in this product, in whole or in part, is used with permission of The NGC/IC Project LLC. Many thanks go to those who maintain and make available their astronomy datasets without which this sky atlas would not have been possible. Permission for any use of these chart images is granted, provided that the original website address remains visible on all images. Enjoy!
