<<KOS SPN NNN>> N: 716 Object:G  (SIMBAD class: Galaxy) Note:G in 8 fields in the north and south galactic polar caps: NP4 to NP7 (North Pole) and SP3 to SP6 (South Pole). field NP4: N=137. field NP5: N=101. field NP6: N=100. field NP7: N=104. field SP3: N=78. field SP4: N=79. field SP5: N=65. field SP6: N=52. In 1978AJ.....83.1549K, the authors don't numbered the galaxies, so we use a format 'HHMMSS.s+DDMMSS'. Galaxies have been numbered later from 1 to NNN in each field (as ordered in 1978AJ.....83.1549K), and in 1988AJ.....95.1629M, the authors used the second format 'FFN NNN'.
