IC 1950 (= PGC 13053)
Discovered (Oct 14, 1898) by
DeLisle Stewart (209)
A magnitude 14.5 spiral galaxy (type Sbc?) in Horologium (RA 03 31 04.3, Dec -50 25 58)
Based on a recessional velocity of 11420 km/sec, a straightfoward calculation indicates that IC 1950 is about 530 million light years away. However, for objects at such distances we should take into account the Universal expansion during the time it took their light to reach us. Doing that shows that the galaxy was about 510 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, about 520 million years ago (the difference between the two numbers being due to the expansion of the intervening space during the light-travel time). Given that and its apparent size of 1.6 by 0.4 arcmin, it is about 240 thousand light years across.

IC 1963 (=
IC 335 = PGC 13277)
Discovered (Oct 15, 1887) by Lewis Swift (and later listed as IC 335)
Discovered (Sep 7, 1897) by Lewis Swift (XI-56) (and later listed as IC 1963)
A magnitude 12.1 lenticular galaxy (type S0??) in Fornax (RA 03 35 31.2, Dec -34 26 48)
Per Corwin, the (relatively poor) position and (excellent) description for IC 1963 are essentially identical to the ones Swift made ten years earlier for IC 335 (which see for anything else), so the equality of the two listings should have been obvious to Swift and Dreyer; but they missed the identity, hence the duplication.

A magnitude 7.3 open cluster (type IV2pn) and nebula in Perseus (RA 03 44 34.1, Dec +32 09 47)

IC 1986 (= PGC 13521)
Discovered (Dec 6, 1899) by
DeLisle Stewart (235)
A magnitude 14.3 irregular galaxy (Im? pec) in Horologium (RA 03 40 35.2, Dec -45 21 21)
Based on a recessional velocity of 1550 km/sec, IC 1986 is about 70 million light years away, in "reasonable" agreement with a redshift-independent distance estimate of 58 million light years. Given that and its apparent size of 1.5 by 1.05 arcmin, it is about 30 thousand light years across. Its appearance suggests that instead of a single irregular object, it may be the result of a collision between two galaxies; but far better images would be needed to tell.

Apparent size about 1.6 by 0.8 arcmin. Apparently accompanied by a triad of "compact galaxies", but since those appear essentially stellar, they may simply be foreground stars; however, better images or further study will be required to tell.
