The Uppsala General Catalogue (UGC or the Uppsala General Catalogue of Galaxies) is a 1973 catalog of 12000 galaxies visible from the northern hemisphere. It aims at every galaxy of 1.0 arcminute in diameter and an Apparent Magnitude (m) of at most 14.5. Much of the data is from the Palomar Observatory Sky Survey (POSS) carried out in the 1950s.
