The NGC catalogue contains 7840 objects.
94 Planetary nebulae
116 Globular clusters.
Has anyone seen all of the 94 PN?
Has anyone seen all of the 116 GC?
Has anyone seen all of the 150 nebulae?
see table 2.

Maybe we could start with 50 PN or 50 GC or 50 neb.

Thats 360 objects!(PN, GC and Neb)
So no to the questions for me.... hehehehe
Over five years....
that would be 72 a year....
6 a month ....
1.5 a week....
There's a challenge if ever I've seen one!

Bart, I didn't mention the 6026 NGC galaxies and the 675 NGC open clusters. :)
Maybe we could add 50 NGC OC or 50 NGC galaxies.
This is an amazing effort
