This list is used by members of the Saguaro Astronomy Club of Phoenix, AZ. for the Best of the NGC achievement award. Constellation abbreviations are the IAU standard. Type abbreviations: GC= globular cluster, OC= open cluster, PN= planetary nebula, EN= emission nebula, SNR= supernova remnant, RN= reflection nebula, Galaxies are identified by their Hubble type. Sizes are in arc minutes, unless noted otherwise.
