IC 1050 (= PGC 52630)
Discovered (Jun 23, 1892) by
Stephane Javelle (314)
A magnitude 14.5 spiral galaxy (type Sb??) in Bo÷tes (RA 14 44 07.0, Dec +18 00 48)
Based on a recessional velocity of 9610 km/sec, IC 1050 is about 4550 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 1.0 by 0.45 arcmins, it is about 130 thousand light years across.

Discovered (Jul 8, 1891) by
Stephane Javelle (341)
A triplet of galaxies in Bo÷tes
PGC 54011 = A magnitude 14.8 lenticular galaxy (type S0/a? pec?) at RA 15 07 42.0, Dec +14 37 21
PGC 54006 = A magnitude 16.6 spiral galaxy (type SAB0/(s)a?) at (RA 15 07 42.2, Dec +14 37 42)
PGC 54009 = A magnitude 17.0 lenticular galaxy (type S0/a?) at (RA 15 07 42.8, Dec +14 37 40)
Per Dreyer, IC 1094 (= Javelle 341, 1860 RA 15 01 09, NPD 74 51.8) is "pretty bright, very small, round, binuclear". The "binuclear" comment probably indicates that Javelle saw both PGC 54011, the brighter southernmost member of the triplet, and the combined image of PGC 54006 and PGC 54009, the northern pair, so all three galaxies should probably be considered to make up the IC object. (PGC 54011 is itself a binuclear result of the collision of two galaxies, but its nuclei are too close together for Javelle to have seen them as anything other than a single nucleus.) Apparent size of PGC 54011 is about 0.4 by 0.4 arcmin? of PGC 54006 about 0.3 by 0.3 arcmin? of PGC 54009 about 0.2 by 0.2 arcmin?

IC 1096 (= PGC 54050)
Discovered (Jul 20, 1892) by
Stephane Javelle
A magnitude 15(?) lenticular galaxy (type SAB0(s)a?) in Bo÷tes (RA 15 08 21.6, Dec +19 11 32)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, IC 1096 (Javelle #342, 1860 RA 15 01 58, NPD 70 16.6) is "very faint, small, diffuse." The position precesses to RA 15 08 20.5, Dec +19 11 05, less than 0.5 arcmin southwest of the galaxy listed above, the description fits and there is only one problem with the identification. Namely, PGC 54055, which lies to the northeast of PGC 54050, is considerably brighter, so it seems odd that Javelle would have observed PGC 54050 and 54059 (IC 1097), but not PGC 54055, which is the brightest of the three galaxies. As a result, almost all modern catalogues misidentify the brighter galaxy as IC 1096, which is why that object, although not an IC object, is discussed in the entry immediately below. However, Javelle's offset from PGC 54050 is exactly the same as his offset from IC 1097, so the position must refer to PGC 54050, and I agree with Harold Corwin, Steve Gottlieb and Malcolm Thomson in stating that either Javelle mistook PGC 54055 for a faint star, or simply failed to measure its position, and that there can be no doubt that PGC 54050 is indeed IC 1096 (as therefore stated in the NED).
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity relative to the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation of 6310 km/sec (and H0 = 70 km/sec/Mpc), IC 1096 is about 290 to 295 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of about 0.55 by 0.35 arcmin (from the images below), the galaxy is about 45 to 50 thousand light years across
Note About Visual Magnitude: There are numerous magnitude measurements at various wavelengths, but none at visual magnitudes. As a result, the magnitude shown is a mean of the apparently "best" estimates.

A magnitude 14.2(?) elliptical galaxy (type E0) in Bo÷tes (RA 15 08 24.0, Dec +19 12 29)
Historical Misidentification: As noted in the entry for IC 1096, almost all modern catalogues misidentify PGC 54055 as IC 1096, because it is the brightest of the three galaxies in the region. But as also noted there, there can be no doubt that IC 1096 is actually the faintest of the three galaxies. So this entry serves as a warning (repeated in the NED) about the misidentification.
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity relative to the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation of 6570 km/sec (and H0 = 70 km/sec/Mpc), PGC 54055 is about 305 million light years away, in fair agreement with a single redshift-independent distance estimate of about 240 million light years. Given that and its apparent size of about 0.7 by 0.7 arcmin (from the image below), the galaxy is about 60 to 65 thousand light years across.
Note About Visual Magnitude: There are numerous magnitude measurements at various wavelengths, but none at visual magnitudes. As a result, the magnitude shown is a mean of the apparently "best" estimates.

IC 1097 (= PGC 54059)
Discovered (Jul 20, 1892) by
Stephane Javelle
A magnitude 14.4(?) spiral galaxy (type SB(s)b?) in Bo÷tes (RA 15 08 31.3, Dec +19 11 04)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, IC 1097 (Javelle #343, 1860 RA 15 02 08, NPD 70 17.1) is "very faint, very small, round, a little brighter middle." The position precesses to RA 15 08 30.5, Dec +19 10 36, less than 0.5 arcmin south-southwest of the galaxy listed above, and almost within its southern arm, the description fits and although there are a couple of other galaxies nearby, Javelle's measurements are too accurate to consider either of them (in fact, one is his #342, which is IC 1096), so the identification is certain.
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity relative to the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation of 6305 km/sec (and H0 = 70 km/sec/Mpc), IC 1097 is about 290 to 295 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of about 1.15 by 0.4 arcmin (from the images below), the galaxy is about 95 to 100 thousand light years across.
Note About Visual Magnitude: There are numerous magnitude measurements at various wavelengths, but none at visual magnitudes. As a result, the magnitude shown is a mean of the apparently "best" estimates.
