PGC 1523 (=
NGC 99)

PGC 1614 (=
HCG 1C)
A magnitude 15.9(?) elliptical galaxy (type E1?) in Andromeda (RA 00 25 54.4, Dec +25 43 25)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 10055 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 1614 is about 470 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 the galaxy was about 450 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, about 460 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 0.4 by 0.35 arcmin, the galaxy is about 50 thousand light years across. A member (1c) of Hickson Compact Group 1.

PGC 1618 (=
HCG 1D)
A magnitude 17.4(?) lenticular galaxy (type S0?) in Andromeda (RA 00 25 58.8, Dec +25 43 31)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 10120 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 1614 is about 470 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 the galaxy was about 455 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, about 460 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 0.25 by 0.15 arcmin, the galaxy is about 30 thousand light years across. A member (1d) of Hickson Compact Group 1.

PGC 1625 (=
HCG 1B)
A magnitude 15.5(?) lenticular galaxy (type S0/a? pec) in Andromeda (RA 00 26 06.0, Dec +25 43 09)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 10265 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 1625 is about 480 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 the galaxy was about 460 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, about 465 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 0.35 by 0.3 arcmin, the main galaxy is about 45 thousand light years across. However, it is part of a large interacting complex, including PGC 1627 and a fainter unnamed galaxy, that extends over an apparent size of 2.2 by 1.0 arcmin, or about 290 thousand light years. Also a member (1b) of Hickson Compact Group 1.

PGC 1627 (=
HCG 1A)
A magnitude 15.0(?) spiral galaxy (type Sbc? pec) in Andromeda (RA 00 26 07.1, Dec +25 43 31)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 10235 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 1627 is about 475 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 the galaxy was about 460 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, about 465 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 0.85 by 0.35 arcmin, the main galaxy is about 115 thousand light years across. Part of a large interacting complex, including PGC 1625 and a fainter unnamed galaxy, that extends over an apparent size of 2.2 by 1.0 arcmin, or about 290 thousand light years. Also a member (1a) of Hickson Compact Group 1.

PGC 1934 (=
HCG 2D)
A magnitude 16.7? spiral galaxy (type SBb?) in Pisces (RA 00 31 38.3, Dec +08 23 26)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 21340 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 1934 is about 995 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 the galaxy was about 915 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, about 945 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 0.75 by 0.55 arcmin, the galaxy is about 200 thousand light years across. Since PGC 1934 is much further away than any of the other members of Hickson Compact Group 2, it is not actually associated with the Group.
