Details on Acronym:   SECCO
   SECCO (StEllar Counterparts of COmpact high velocity clouds) Write:<<SECCO N>>
<<SECCO -dI-N>> N: 6+1+2 Object:Poss. LSB Dwarf G + Dwarf Irregular G  (SIMBAD class: Unknown = Object of unknown nature) Note:The searching for StEllar Counterparts of COmpact high velocity clouds (SECCO) survey is devoted to the search for stellar counterparts within ultra compact high velocity clouds that are candidate low-mass, low-luminosity galaxies.
Format -LSB-VAN: for Low Surface Brightness dwarf candidates, the format may contain a V indicating the likely association with the Virgo cluster, the letter of the SECCO field where the galaxy has been found (fields C, D and X) and a number to distinguish between dwarfs lying in the same SECCO field.
Format -dI-N: for dwarf irregular galaxies.
