Large galaxies

Who found the 200 largest NGC galaxies?

1 William Herschel found 107
2 James Dunlop found 20
3 Pierre Mechain found 16
4 John Herschel found 15
5 Charles Messier found 8

The other 34 large galaxies were found by 23 people

James Dunlop was also the first to catalogue the star clusters and nebulae in the two Magellan Clouds.
