IC 1900 (= PGC 12124)
Discovered (Jan 18, 1898) by
Stephane Javelle (973)
A magnitude 14.0 lenticular galaxy (type S0??) in Perseus (RA 03 15 55.2, Dec +37 09 17)
Apparent size 0.5 by 0.4 arcmin?

IC 1901 (= PGC 12136)
Discovered (Jan 18, 1898) by
Stephane Javelle (974)
A magnitude 14.9 spiral galaxy (type S??) in Perseus (RA 03 16 02.5, Dec +37 06 47)
Apparent size 0.8 by 0.2 arcmin?

IC 1902 (= PGC 12150)
Discovered (Jan 18, 1898) by
Stephane Javelle (975)
A magnitude 14.6 lenticular galaxy (type S0/a??) in Perseus (RA 03 16 12.4, Dec +37 10 41)
Apparent size 0.4 by 0.4 arcmin?

IC 1903 (= PGC 11990 (= PGC 465081) + PGC 11986 (= PGC 465232))
Discovered (Oct 14, 1898) by
DeLisle Stewart
A pair of galaxies in Horologium
PGC 11990 = A magnitude 15.0 spiral galaxy (type Sab?) at RA 03 13 12.6, Dec -50 34 41
PGC 11986= A magnitude 15.5 spiral galaxy (type Sc?) at RA 03 13 08.5, Dec -50 33 46
Per Dreyer, IC 1903 (= DeLisle Stewart #171, 1860 RA 03 08 46, NPD 141 07) "2 faint nebulae, extended". The position precesses to RA 03 13 06.2, Dec -50 35 32, just southwest of the pair of galaxies listed above, so the identification is certain. Apparent size of PGC 11990 is 0.6 by 0.2 arcmin; of PGC 11986 is 0.4 by 0.1 arcmin.

IC 1904 (= PGC 12079)
Discovered (1899) by
DeLisle Stewart (172)
A magnitude 13.4 spiral galaxy (type SBab??) in Fornax (RA 03 15 00.9, Dec -30 42 30)
Apparent size 1.4 by 0.6 arcmin?

IC 1905
Recorded (Nov 14, 1884) by
Guillaume Bigourdan (374)
A triple star in Perseus (RA 03 18 48.0, Dec +41 21 59)
Per Corwin, there is a fourth star a bit to the side, but Bigourdan's position is "off" in the opposite direction, so the IC entry probably belongs only to the triplet.

IC 1906 (= PGC 12138)
Discovered (1899) by
DeLisle Stewart (173)
A magnitude 13.5 spiral galaxy (type SBbc??) in Fornax (RA 03 16 05.7, Dec -34 21 36)
Apparent size 1.2 by 0.4 arcmin?

IC 1907 (=
NGC 1278 = PGC 12438)
Discovered (Feb 14, 1863) by Heinrich d'Arrest (and later listed as NGC 1278)
Discovered (Oct 22, 1884) by Guillaume Bigourdan (375) (and later listed as IC 1907)
A magnitude 12.4 elliptical galaxy (type E2?) in Perseus (RA 03 19 54.1, Dec +41 33 49)
Per Corwin, Bigourdan thought he had found a new nebula because of an error in Lord Rosse's catalog; but he realized that his #375 was the same as NGC 1278 (which see for anything else) while preparing his own catalog, so the identity of the two objects has been known for more than a century. Despite that, LEDA misidentifies PGC 12405 as IC 1907, and some other references follow its lead, hence the entry immediately below.

PGC 12405 (not =
IC 1907)
Not an IC object but listed here because sometimes misidentified as IC 1907
A magnitude 14.2 galaxy (type S0??) in Perseus (RA 03 19 34.2, Dec +41 34 49)
Apparent size 0.9 by 0.8 arcmin?

IC 1908 (= PGC 12085 + PGC 12086)
Discovered (Dec 5, 1899) by
DeLisle Stewart
A pair of galaxies in Horologium
PGC 12085 = A magnitude 14.0 spiral galaxy (type SBb??) at RA 03 15 05.1, Dec -54 49 09
PGC 12086 = A magnitude 15.2 spiral galaxy (type S??) at RA 03 15 05.7, Dec -54 49 19
Per Dreyer, IC 1908 (= DeLisle Stewart #174, 1860 RA 03 11 18, NPD 145 21) is "very faint, very small, spiral branch". The position precesses to RA 03 15 08.1, Dec -54 49 53, a position just south of the pair listed above, and the description is perfect, so the identification is certain. The apparent size of PGC 12085 is 1.3 by 0.9 arcmin(?); of PGC 12086 is 0.5 by 0.3 arcmin(?).

IC 1909 (= PGC 12212)
