At the beginning of the Gallery we present three tables.
Table 1 outlines the arrangement of the Gallery by morphological class and subclass as described in §3.1. It gives one line descriptions of the classes and the abbreviations used to indicate the class in Table 3.
Table 2 is the Table of Contents for the Rogues Gallery. It lists the galaxies in the order in which they appear in the Atlas, grouped by class, followed by the Figure and page number.
Table 3 presents basic information for all 432 of the cataloged galaxies labeled in the 181 images of the Rogues Gallery. The entries are listed in order of increasing Right Ascension (J2000) of the main target galaxy in the image. The galaxies are grouped by image and groups are separated by thick horizontal lines. Within a group individual galaxies are separated by thin horizontal lines. In the first two columns we list the most popular catalog names. In column three we list the J2000 coordinates and the heliocentric radial velocity (km s). All information in these first three columns is taken directly from a batch query to the NASA Extragalactic Database (NED) in July of 2001. Column 4 lists the morphological type as found in NED, the RSA (Sandage & Tamman 1987) and the RC3 catalogs (de Vaucouleurs et al. 1991). Column 5 gives the class as defined in §3 and Table 1, and the Figure and page number.
In addition to the three table mentioned above, there is a comprehensive object index at the end of this volume, which includes all objects in the Rogues Gallery.
