Title: The Extragalactic Database
Url: http://ned.ipac.caltech.edu/
Publisher: California Institute of Technology
United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Description: Welcome to the NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED). It is built around a master list of extragalactic objects for which cross-identifications of names have been established, accurate positions and redshifts entered to the extent possible, and some basic data collected. Bibliographic references relevant to individual objects have been compiled, and abstracts of extragalactic interest are kept on line. Detailed and referenced photometry, position, and redshift data, have been taken from large compilations and from the literature. NED also includes images from 2MASS, from the literature, and from the Digitized Sky Survey. NED's data and references are being continually updated, with revised versions being put on-line every 2-3 months.
