IC 4250 (= PGC 47008 + PGC 1777586)
Discovered (Jun 12, 1895) by
Stephane Javelle
A pair of galaxies in Coma Berenices
PGC 47008 = A magnitude 14.5 spiral galaxy (type SABb? pec) (RA 13 26 09.0, Dec +26 28 38)
PGC 1777586 = A magnitude 15.2 lenticular galaxy (type S0/a? pec) (RA 13 26 08.2, Dec +26 28 21)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, IC 4250 (= Javelle #1251, 1860 RA 13 19 35, NPD 62 47.9) is "faint, small, diffuse". The position precesses to RA 13 26 11.8, Dec +26 28 21, just over half an arcmin southeast of the brighter member of the pair of galaxies listed above, and there is nothing else nearby, so it is virtually certain that one or both of the galaxies is what Javelle observed. The main question is whether the fainter southwestern component should be considered part of the IC object, or merely an accidental companion, as the description suggests that as faint as the brighter galaxy is, the fainter one might have been beyond Javelle's observational ability. However, the two galaxies are a gravitationally interacting pair, so whether Javelle's observation included the fainter galaxy or not, it is probably best to consider them both to be part of the IC object.
Physical Information: The recessional velocity of PGC 47008 is 11145 km/sec, while that of PGC 1777586 is 11170 km/sec. Since they are interacting pair, we should use the average of their recessional velocities to determine their undoubtedly identical Hubble distance. Based on the average recessional velocity of 11165 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that IC 4250 is about 520 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 pair was almost 500 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, almost 510 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 0.45 by 0.3 arcmin, PGC 47008 is about 65 thousand light years across, while PGC 1777586's apparent size of 0.3 by 0.15 arcmin corresponds to about 45 thousand light years.

IC 4257
Recorded (May 10, 1899) by
James Edward Keeler
Probably a nonexistent object in Canes Venatici (RA 13 27 17.5, Dec +46 52 10)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, IC 4257 (= Keeler (1 (666)), 1860 RA 13 21 20, NPD 42 24.2) is "extremely faint, small, round, diffuse". The position precesses to RA 13 27 17.5, Dec +46 52 10, whence the position above, but there is nothing there. Per Corwin, this is one of seven nebulae recorded by Keeler during a search of the area near M51. The others' positions all fit appropriate galaxies, but in the case of IC 4257 the only thing anywhere near is PGC 2289589, a faint galaxy about 4 arcmin to the north, but with errors in both its positions that do not lend themselves to a supposition of a careless recording error. An error in the reduction of its position also seems unlikely, as Keeler said he observed the object on two separate plates, so an error in reducing one plate's measurement should have been caught by the reduction for the other plate. As a result, it seems most likely that in claiming to have observed such an "extremely faint, diffuse" object Keeler was simply over-reaching, and IC 4257 does not exist.

IC 4271 ( =
Arp 40 = PGC 47334 + PGC 3096774)
Discovered (Jul 10, 1896) by Stephane Javelle
A pair of galaxies in Canes Venatici
PGC 47334 = A magnitude 15.0 spiral galaxy (type SBab? pec) at RA 13 29 21.5, Dec +37 24 50
PGC 3096774 = A magnitude 17(?) spiral galaxy (type Sc?) at RA 13 29 21.4, Dec +37 24 34
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, IC 4271 (= Javelle #1257, 1860 RA 13 23 07, NPD 51 51.9) is "faint, small, round, gradually brighter middle, mottled but not resolved". The position precesses to RA 13 29 24.0, Dec +37 24 36, half an arcmin east of the pair of galaxies listed above, so the identification is certain. The only question is whether the IC designation should apply to the pair or merely to the brighter member, and tradition seems to apply it to the pair, so that is what I have done in this entry.
Physical Information: IC 4271 is used by the Arp Atlas as an example of a spiral galaxy with a faint companion. PGC 47334 has a recessional velocity of 17050 km/sec, and PGC 3096774 of 16885 km/sec, but they appear to be gravitationally interacting, and if so must be at the same distance. Using their average recessional velocity of 16970 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that the pair is about 790 million light years away. However, for objects at such distances we should take into account the expansion of the Universe during the time it took their light to reach us. Doing that shows that they were about 740 million light years away at the time the light which we see them was emitted, about 760 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 PGC 47334's apparent size of 0.6 by 0.5 arcmin, it is about 130 thousand light years across, while PGC 3096774's apparent size of 0.3 by 0.25 arcmin corresponds to 65 thousand light years. Both galaxies are listed as Seyfert galaxies (in each case, type Sy 2).

IC 4272 (= PGC 47533)
Discovered (May 4, 1904) by
Royal Frost
A magnitude 14.8 spiral galaxy (type Sbc??) in Hydra (RA 13 31 16.4, Dec -29 57 24)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, IC 4272 (= Frost #1062, 1860 RA 13 23 22, NPD 119 15) has a "brighter middle, magnitude 14, possibly double".
Physical Information: Apparent size 1.0 by 0.2 arcmin?

IC 4273 (= PGC 47552)
Discovered (May 4, 1904) by
Royal Frost
A magnitude 14.5 lenticular galaxy (type S0??) in Hydra (RA 13 31 29.8, Dec -28 53 38)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, IC 4273 (= Frost #1063, 1860 RA 13 23 35, NPD 118 11) has a "brighter middle, magnitude 13".

IC 4274 (=
NGC 5189)
Discovered (Jul 1, 1826) by James Dunlop (and later listed as NGC 5189)
Discovered (1901) by Williamina Fleming (and later listed as IC 4274)
A magnitude 10(?) planetary nebula in Musca (RA 13 33 32.9, Dec -65 58 25)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, IC 4274 (= Fleming #93, 1860 RA 13 23 39, NPD 115 16) is "planetary, stellar". The position precesses to RA 13 31 22.7, Dec -25 59 24, but there is nothing there. However, per Corwin, there is a simple explanation of the problem. Fleming's declination was listed in the Harvard Annals as -65 degrees, which corresponds to an NPD of 155 degrees; so whatever blunder led to that being recorded in the IC2 as an NPD of 115 degrees caused a 40 degree error in the position of the object. Using the correct NPD of 155 16, the position precesses to RA 13 33 24.9, Dec -65 59 20, on the southwestern periphery of planetary nebula NGC 5189, making it certain that IC 4274 is simply a duplicate of that entry. (Corwin also mentions that the 40 degree error was repeated in the NGC 2000.0 catalog, showing how easy it is for such errors to acquire near immortality.)
Physical Information: Given the duplicate entry, see NGC 5189 for anything else.

IC 4287 (= PGC 47659 + J1332395+252626)
Discovered (Jun 20, 1895) by
Stephane Javelle
A pair of galaxies in Coma Berenices
PGC 47659 = A magnitude 14.5 spiral galaxy (type Sa?) at RA 13 32 38.9, Dec +25 26 27
J1332395+252626 = A magnitude 16.5 lenticular galaxy (type S0/a?) at RA 13 32 39.5, Dec +25 26 26
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, IC 4287 (= Javelle #1259, 1860 RA 13 25 59, NPD 63 52.2) is "faint, small, round, gradually brighter middle, possibly another very near". (Based on Javelle's note about "another possibly very near", even though J1332395+252626 is much fainter than PGC 47659, it is definitely part of what Javelle observed, and therefore part of IC 4287.)
Physical Information: Apparent size of PGC 47659 is about 0.85 by 0.4 arcmin; of J1332395+252626 is about 0.2 by 0.1 arcmin.

IC 4291
Discovered (1901) by
Robert Innes
A magnitude 9.7 open cluster (type II2p) in Centaurus (RA 13 36 56.3, Dec -62 05 35)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, IC 4291 (= Innes (#11), 1860 RA 13 27 36, NPD 151 20.4) is "pretty small, round, brighter middle".
Physical Information: Apparent size 4.0 arcmin? Per Corwin, though recorded by Innes as a small nebula, this is actually a compact open cluster, about 5 by 3 arcmin in overall extent, with a central condensation of 2.0 by 1.8 arcmin that is presumably what Innes mistook for the brighter middle of a nebular object.
