Re: (IAAC) Obj: HICKSON 40 ARP321 PGC27509 - Inst: 40Cm(16")Dob


I am very interested the observations of Hickson compact groups of galaxies.
Back in 1994 when Atlas of Compact Groups of Galaxies was published, I bargain to make an addendum.
Using Megastar and the DSS, I made finder charts along with an image of the same field of view of all one hundred Hick object groups using the DDS and Magastar. I had in mind to publish this addendum for use by amateur astronomers. However, with the advancement of computers and astronomy software, I find this work of little use to avid Internet users.
They can find and print out their own charts and download any of the Hickson groups them selves.
Nevertheless, my deep interest in observing galaxies and promoting them remains the same.
Anyone, who would care to discuss the Hickson groups or Arp groups please feel free to contact me off list.

Clear Skies,
