A rather open spiral 3' x 1' in p.a. 0°. Nucleus stellar, and appears displaced to
one side of the central mass because of a well-marked dark lane on the east.
The whorls show a number of very faint, almost stellar condensations. See
12-13; the two main whorls show numerous almost stellar condensations.
In addition to the four larger- nebulae, there are many small nebulae on this
plate; one-sixth of these are clearly spirals. In the case of the smaller and
fainter objects it is, of course, impossible to pronounce as to their spiral
character, but the proportion of spirals is doubtless a much larger one.
69 s.n. A moderately bright oval 018 x 015, crossed by a streak of brighter matter; a compact 0-type spiral. Faint and irregular; total diameter about 3'. Bifid; an edgewise spiral with
a wide absorbing lane. Fairly bright and sharp nucleus from which the
matter on the n.f. side extends in a faint fan. See Abs. Eff. 19 s.n. Vol. VIII, Plates 30A and 30B. A bright spiral 416x315 in p.a. 5°. Bright
stellar nucleus; whorls are somewhat irregular, open, and show many almost
stellar condensations. 0-type at center. 18 s.n. A moderately bright spiral 115 x 016, with most of the matter in a single whorl
which forms an irregular oval ring; almost stellar nucleus. A fine, bright, nearly round spiral, 2' in diameter; bright, almost stellar nucleus.
The two main whorls are rather open, and show numerous almost stellar
condensations. A moderately bright, binuclear patch about 013 in diameter ( two very small
nebulae close together?). A beautiful, nearly round, rather open and symmetrical spiral, 415 in diameter.

whorls are rather open and show a number of faint condensations; the
central portions show traces of the 0-type formation. 20 s.n. A faint spindle V long in p.a. 150°. An exceedingly faint, narrow oval 2' long in p.a. 160°. No spiral structure
discernible. A moderately bright, very narrow edgewise spiral 4' long in p.a. 70°. There
is a clear-cut dark lane down the middle in which is a star of magn. 12. See
Abs. Eff. 20 s.n.
There is evidence of an absorption lane on the east. It is not binuclear as
described in the N. G. C. 42 s.n. A narrow, bright spindle, 3' long, in p.a. 176°, with a very bright, somewhat
enlarged center. Evidences of spiral character very indistinct, but it is
doubtless an edgewise spiral. 10 s.n. A rather bright, slightly oval spiral 2' long. Nucleus almost stellar; numerous
almost stellar condensations in the rather open whorls. A very bright narrow oval 4'x 1' in p.a. 83°. Nucleus bright, but not stellar.
Evidence of a short, curved, dark lane on the south. A spiral, though the
whorls are indistinct. The nucleus just shows in 2m on S23. 12 s.n. A nearly round spiral 2' in diameter. The outer whorls are rather open; the
center is occupied by compact, bright, somewhat irregular disk of matter
about 015 diameter; no true nucleus can be seen. A fine, rather bright spiral 4' x 2' in p.a. 122°. Very bright stellar nucleus.
There are numerous almost stellar condensations. It is a two-branched
spiral, and each branch is bifid. 15 s.n. A rather faint, compact, regular spiral 3' x 1' in p.a. 95°. The whorls are
rather patchy; faint stellar nucleus, which just shows in a 10m exposure.
11 s.n. A narrow spiral 6' x 1' in p.a. 18°. The whorls are distinct, but irregular.
Bright, rather large nucleus, considerably to the n. of apparent center of
the nebula; numerous almost stellar condensations. 12 s.n. A fairly bright, rather irregular spiral 4' x 1' in p.a. 162°. Nucleus bright,
but not stellar; whorls uniform in texture showing few condensations. 16 s.n. An open, patchy spiral 5'x 315 in p.a. 90°; shows numerous almost stellar condensations and a very faint nucleus. The nebular matter is faint, and the
description "B" of the N. G. C. seems unwarranted.
Bright, small cluster 2' in diameter. Probably of globular type.
The nucleus is almost stellar, very bright, nearly equivalent to 10 magn. This is surrounded by a bright central portion which shows traces of spiral formation. Outside of this is a vacant ring. The outer whorls form an oval 216 x i16, and these are brightest at the ends of the major axis. It somewhat resembles the planetary type, and the observations of Messrs. Campbell and Paddock show that the nucleus has bright lines in its spectrum. It is undoubtedly a spiral, however. 40 s.n. 4156 12 5.8 +40 2 A small, rather bright spiral 1' long, slightly oval. Nucleus bright and almost
stellar. Shows traces of the i£-type formation in the central portions.
Faint, nearly round spiral, 017 in diameter.
An open, elongated spiral 8' x 2' in p.a. 150°. Bright stellar nucleus; numerous almost stellar condensations. Absorption effects on east side. Figure in Vogel I, No. 6 (Leip. Beob., Bd. 1). M. 98. See Abs. Eff. 30 s.n.
A greatly elongated spiral 4'x 016 in p.a. 5°. Quite faint; there is a faint nucleus, and evidence of an absorption lane at the east of the nucleus. See Abs. Eff.
A faint, narrow spindle 2' long in p.a. 120°; doubtless a spiral seen nearly edgewise.
A faint disk 012 in diameter; no structure discernible.
A compact, moderately bright spiral 2' x 1' in p.a. 65°. Bright, almost stellar nucleus; the whorls are somewhat patchy and irregular. See Abs. Eff. 26 s.n.
A very irregular aggregation of nebular matter and nebulous stars, which is about 8' x 4', with the very faint outlying condensations. There is apparently an almost stellar nucleus. The general appearance of the nebulosity is of the spiral type, but it is exceedingly irregular; not a nebulosity of the diffuse type. Quite bright. 13 s.n. 4216 12 10.8 +13 42 A greatly elongated spiral 7'x 1'in p.a. 18". The central portion is very bright,
showing well in a 10"' exposure, nucleus is not stellar. Well marked evidence of absorption lanes on the east. This, with 4206 and 4222, forms an interesting group of three almost edgewise spirals in the same field. See Abs. Eff. 41 s.n.
A very irregular oval patch 017 long, with a line of brighter matter down its
A fairly bright spiral 215 x 0'A in p.a. 135°. Bright, almost stellar nucleus.
Edgewise spiral 3' long in p.a. 60°; rather faint; no definite nucleus.
Very faint; 10' to 12' long by about 2' broad; p.a. 165°. A few faint condensations, but no discernible nucleus. Quite irregular; probably an S-shaped spiral seen nearly edgewise.
Rather faint, nearly round, indistinct spiral 015 in diameter.
Faint oval spiral 017 long, with faint, almost stellar nucleus.
Vol. VIII, Plate 31. A fine, quite bright, edgewise spiral, 13'x 019 in p.a. 50°. An irregular dark lane runs down the middle. A few almost stellar condensations. Apparently no nucleus; though there is a star of magn. 14 in this position. See Abs. Eff. 10 s.n.
This is a faint, almost linear strip of nebulosity 1'x Oil in p.a. 110°; doubtless the central portion of an edgewise spiral.
A rather faint spindle I12 long in p.a. 47°; spiral.
This is a small 0-type nebulae with a fairly bright, almost stellar nucleus, and a very bright "cross-arm," which gives it a Saturn-\ike appearance; this line of matter is 01o long, and from its ends proceed very faint whorls. 4254 12 13.7 +14 59 Vol. VIII, Plate 32. A very bright, approximately round spiral 415 in diameter.
Nucleus almost stellar. There are two main whorls, rather open, which show many almost stellar condensations. M. 99. 47 s.n.
Narrow oval with brighter center, 018 long; traces of spiral structure.
Vol. VIII, Plate 33. With the very faint extensions this spiral is nearly 20'x 6' in p.a. 165°; very bright, elongated nuclear portion, on the west of which is a short dark lane; there are numerous almost stellar condensations in the two principal spiral branches. See Abs. Eff. 11 s.n.
