Arp Peculiar Galaxies - 2018

This zip file contains two Sky Databases (SDB's) with the objects "Arp Peculiar Galaxies". There are 338 of them The SDB should be put in the following location and supercedes all previous Arp Peculiar Galaxies SDB's to date! One SDB plots their labels the other does not. Use one or the other but enabling both won't hurt.

To install:

  1. Download and unzip the files in this archive into the SDBs folder of TheSkyX's Application Support Files folder.
  2. From TheSkyX, click the Database Manager command from the Input menu.
  3. Expand Sky Databases, then My Sky Databases and turn on the appropriate checkbox for this SDB.

For convenience a second SDB file of type "Labels" is also included. When the "Labels" SDB is enabled the Arp number appears on the display out to 160 degrees for easy identification. You can have both enabled but generally speaking use one or the other SDB.

Arp Peculiar Galaxies all 338 galaxies using the PGC identifier for best results in regard to positions, sizes, cross references, and magnitudes. This was pain stakingly done over several days using several good reliable resources. Including but not limited to:
