If you want to view planetary nebulae the following link gives images for all the 94 NGC PN and two IC PN.
https://picasaweb.google.com/dunlop1...m95-XF98SCggE# (https://picasaweb.google.com/dunlop1826/NGCPlanetaryNebulae?authkey=Gv1sRgC Jm95-XF98SCggE#)
The field size is always 14 arcmin, with one exception the Helix Nebula NGC 7293. This makes it easy to compare PN sizes.
These PN are north of dec +50: M97, N40, N1501, N6543, N7008, N7076, N7139 and N7354.
They are difficult to see from Australia and NZ.
I compiled these 97 images using http://www.wikisky.org/
Thanks for the link.
When observing, I usually don't look at images since it changes my expectations. If I look at a nice image I am usually then disappointed by a faint smudge!
Having said that, this link will be useful after observing to check I had the right idea when looking at the object. :)

There are 114 NGC Globular Clusters.
They can be seen at https://picasaweb.google.com/dunlop1826/GlobularClusters?authkey=Gv1sRgCOTv 9cm0msHbSQ#
The images are from wikisky.org
They have a field of 28'.

Bob Erdmann's images of all the NGC objects can be seen at
If you click on the object's name you will get data and history.

Did the NGCIC project website go off line a while ago and I thought these guys collaborating together at one stage?

The NGCIC website went offline and the NGCIC project replaced it.
There seems to be some friction between a couple of people.

Ah, thanks Glen :thumbsup: I haven't looked at the "new" site too closely, but on the surface there appears to be no reduction in quality or data! A fabulous resource.

Here are 140 images of some of the best DSO for Southern Observers.

The binos from the avatar are gone, I see, Glen!
This last link is particularly useful for me, as it gives me a nice selection of sketching targets, all bundled up neatly.
