Table – Galaxies in our Local Group

The following table is of Galaxies in our Local Group.   Added to each row will be notes that I have made when I have observed/photographed these.   (or not where I have personal challenges in doing so.)

I have started methodically going though this list and viewing these objects, I have a plan to capture the ones that I can's see from where I live by accessing remote telescopes.
