IC 2200 (= PGC 21075)
Discovered (1900) by
DeLisle Stewart
A magnitude 13.2 spiral galaxy (type (R)SABb pec) in Carina (RA 07 28 17.4, Dec -62 21 10)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, IC 2200 (DeLisle Stewart #313, 1860 RA 07 26 37, NPD 152 03) is "extremely faint, extremely small, extremely extended 65°, between 2 stars, suspected", 'suspected' meaning that Stewart felt some uncertainty about the observation, but was more certain the nebula existed than not. The position precesses to RA 07 28 18.0, Dec -62 20 25, less than a half arcmin north of the main body of the eastern member of a pair of galaxies, which object is therefore listed here as IC 2200. The description "between 2 stars" suggests that Stewart mistook the nucleus of the western member of the pair for a star, and that PGC 21062 is therefore not part of IC 2200. Instead, it is considered a separate object and given a separate entry, immediately below.
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 3250 km/sec, IC 2200 is about 150 million light-years away. Given that and its apparent size of 1.4 by 0.85 arcmin, it is about 60 thousand light-years across. It and its companion are thought to be separated by only 80 thousand light-years, because they are gravitationally interacting, and have a common envelope of hot gases presumably expelled by their interaction. They will probably merge into a single galaxy within a few hundreds of millions of years. It should be noted that their estimated separation is based on the envelope of gas that they share. If they were much further apart they would probably have separate gaseous envelopes.

PGC 21062 (= "IC 2200A")
Not an IC object but listed here because sometimes called IC 2200A
A magnitude 12.7 lenticular galaxy (type SB(s)0? pec) in
Carina (RA 07 28 06.6, Dec -62 21 47)
Physical Information: Paired with IC 2200, which see for a more detailed discussion and images of the galaxies. Based on its recessional velocity of 3240 km/sec, PGC 21062 is about 150 million light-years away, and in any event must be at the same distance as its companion. Given that and its apparent size of 1.4 by 1.3 arcmin, it is about 60 thousand light-years across.

IC 2217 (= PGC 22476)
Discovered (Feb 8, 1896) by

IC 2218 (= PGC 22509)
Discovered (Feb 7, 1896) by
Stephane Javelle
A magnitude 14.9 spiral galaxy (type S??) in Cancer (RA 08 01 38.4, Dec +24 25 55)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, IC 2218 (Javelle #1017, 1860 RA 07 53 13, NPD 65 11.5) is "faint, small, round, 14th magnitude star very near."
Physical Information: Apparent size 0.6 by 0.2 arcmin? Steinicke lists PGC 1707313 as a component, but it is not only much fainter than, but also well separated from its larger companion, and there is nothing in Javelle's description to indicate that it should be considered part of the IC entry; however, it does have a similar recessional velocity and may be a physical companion, so it is listed immediately below.

PGC 1707313 (not = part of
IC 2218)
Not an IC object or part of one, but listed here since a possible physical companion of IC 2218
A magnitude 16.7 spiral galaxy (type S??) in Cancer (RA 08 01 36.8, Dec +24 26 22)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: Apparent size 0.2 by 0.1 arcmin? As noted in the discussion of IC 2218, not a part of that IC entry; but a possible physical companion, as it has a similar recessional velocity. However, there are no obvious signs of interaction between the two, so although they may be relatively close to each other, they are almost certainly not as close as they appear.

IC 2219 (= PGC 22565)
Discovered (Feb 10, 1896) by

A magnitude 13.7 spiral galaxy (type Sc??) in Cancer (RA 08 02 36.5, Dec +27 26 14)

IC 2221 (= PGC 2101054)
Discovered (Feb 28, 1900) by
Stephane Javelle
A magnitude 15.2 lenticular galaxy (type E/S0?) in Lynx (RA 08 05 08.0, Dec +37 27 02)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, IC 2221 (= Javelle #1019, 1860 RA 07 55 53, NPD 52 09.4) is "very faint, very small, round, difficult". The position precesses to RA 08 05 08.1, Dec +37 27 08, right on the galaxy listed above, so the identity is certain. However, some references unaccountably list a completely different object (PGC 22713) as IC 2221, so that object is covered immediately below as a warning about the mistake.

Note: Per Corwin, there is a good chance that this is the same object as IC 2224, and despite some uncertainty, that identification has been accepted by the NED, with the caveat that the identification is very uncertain. Whatever the truth, this entry will only discuss historical information.

IC 2233 (= PGC 23071 = PGC 2270055 = UGC 4278 = CGCG 236-036)
Discovered (Mar 25, 1894) by
Isaac Roberts
Also observed (January, 1903) by Max Wolf
A magnitude 12.6 spiral galaxy (type SB(s)d?) in Lynx (RA 08 13 59.0, Dec +45 44 23)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, IC 2233 (Roberts, 1860 RA 08 04 04, NPD 43 50.0) is "pretty bright, large, extended north-preceding south-following (northwest-southeast); IV 55 north-preceding (to northwest)," (WH) IV 55 being NGC 2537. The position precesses to RA 08 13 57.9, Dec +45 45 02, less than 0.4 arcmin north-northwest of the center of the galaxy listed above and despite its "superthin" nature practically within the disk of the galaxy, the description is nearly perfect and there is nothing else nearby, so the identification is certain.
Discovery Notes: Steinicke lists Wolf's photographic observation, while Gottlieb mentions a 1920 description by [Francis Gladheim] Pease (1881 - 1938) as a "faint edge-on spiral, 240 arcsec by 10 arcsec... witb a faint stellar nucleus," based on a photographic plate taken with the 60-inch telescope at Mount Wilson. (Though also an observer at times, Pease worked with George Ellery Hale on engineering and construction problems at Yerkes and Mount Wilson Observatories and was the primary designer for the telescopes that now dot the mountain top, including the 100-inch telescope which Edwin Hubble used to prove the existence of other galaxies and discover the Universal Expansion. Pease also collaborated with A. A. Michaelson on experiments which proved that the velocity of light is not affected by the Earth's motion around the Sun, thereby disproving the concept of the luminiferous ether, and continued that work after Michaelson's death, proving the non-existence of any variation in the speed of light in a vacuum (as proposed by Einstein) to a very high degree of precision.)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity relative to the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation of 690 km/sec (and H0 = 70 km/sec/Mpc), IC 2233 is about 30 to 35 million light-years away, in good agreement with redshift-independent distance estimates of about 27 to 51 million light-years. Since for such a close object "peculiar velocities" (random motions relative to us and their neighbors) can be a substantial fraction of the recessional velocity due to the Universal Expansion, the HST press release estimate of about 40 million light-years is probably the best estimate of the distance. Given that and its apparent size of about 4.95 by 0.4 arcmin (from the images below), the galaxy spans about 55 to 60 thousand light-years. The galaxy is a "superthin" galaxy, with no noticeable nuclear bulge or dust lane (despite being edge-on), but its large number of hot blue stars (whence its color) and numerous star-forming (HII) regions clearly define it as a spiral.
