Fairall Galaxy List

(Frl, Fairall)
(1977 list of galaxies with bright nuclei)

Astronomer Anthony Patrick Fairall assembled in the 1970s what I'll call his Fairall Galaxy List, a list of galaxies with bright nuclei, e.g., Seyfert galaxies. Some of the galaxies he identified are still commonly identified by his reference number, e.g., Fairall 9.
