Arp Peculiar Galaxies - 2018

Changes to date:

The SDB has been renamed to simply "Arp Peculiar Galaxies" as of May 16 2018. The only change to the SDB plotting is the Labels SDB will no longer plot a redundant galaxy symbol at the galaxy positions. Only the label itself will appear. Meaning it identifies existing PGC/Messier galaxy positions.


To install:

  1. Download and unzip the files in this archive Arp Peculiar Galaxies 2018.zip to the SDBs folder of TheSkyX's Application Support Files
  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.
  4. Once the downloaded file has been unzipped/extracted to the folder above it will appear in TheSkyX under Input>Database Manager>Sky Databases (SDBs)>My Sky Databases. To enable the SDB place a check here.

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:
