As the number of 123 galaxies makes a rather long list, I've separated the table now into three parts:
[ NGC/IC galaxies | PGC galaxies | UGC and other galaxies ]
In the last section "UGC and others" you will find two 2MASXi-objects that I renamed to Lyra I and Lyra II.

Open Clusters

Globular Clusters

Name Description
M56 M56 is a very nice globular cluster. For me it's a highlight for bigger apertures and focal lengths, because it then becomes a mass of stars filling the entire field of an eyepiece. More details to follow
