Millennium Galaxy Catalogue

(MGC)
(2000s catalog of 10,000 galaxies)

The Millennium Galaxy Catalogue (MGC) is a survey to identify galaxies within a 37-square-degree survey field imaged by the Isaac Newton Telescope WFC (Wide Field Camera) using a B filter, imaged over 1999-2001, resulting in a catalog of nearly 70,000 objects, of which 10,000 are well-resolved galaxies.
