An Atlas of 1,300,000 (1.3-Million) Galaxies.

STAR Atlas:PRO™ includes a massive Galaxy database containing more than 1,380,500 Galaxies and an additional 171,000 other non-star objects including 33,000 Quasi-Stellar Objects (QSOs). A total of 1,551,560 (1.55-Million) celestial objects which includes the entire Principal Galaxy Catalogue (PGC2003) and an additional 500,000 (0.5-Million) objects from the Hyperleda catalogue.

Display the most spectacular galaxy charts ever !

Includes a vast collection of galaxies with the latest precision data for each galaxy.

Celestial positions are accurate to an amazing 2 arc seconds! and many prominent galaxies also include colour information allowing these galaxies to be displayed by STAR Atlas:PRO™ in colour. The number of galaxies detailed in STAR Atlas:PRO™ is nothing less than awesome with more than 100,000 galaxies in the constellation of Virgo alone ! Of course you can filter out tiny galaxies and only display larger galaxies. This is perhaps the most comprehensive atlas of galaxies one could ever hope to obtain.

For a screen shot of the number of galaxies and precision with which they are plotted see The Coma Cluster.

Added features

Provides you with valuable search and list features. Easily locate galaxies like the Maffei, Holmberg and Dwingeloo galaxies or find any galaxy by name or designation from a cross-referenced database of more than 3-Million galaxy Names and designations.

Other Features

Optionally limit the size of galaxies to display, display only galaxies from the Principal Galaxy Catalogue (PGC2003), display galaxy colours, list all known catalogue designations/identifications for a selected galaxy.

Galaxy Catalogues

A vast range of Galaxy Catalogues include objects from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (Sloan DSS), the 2-Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS), and dozens more galaxy catalogues. STAR Atlas:PRO™ includes a substantial range of Galaxy Catalogues including the entire Principal Galaxy Catalogue (PGC2003). The following table lists a vast range of include catalogues.
