NED service to search for objects Near an IAU-formatted (coordinate based) name: The NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED) provides a comprehensive fusion of multi-wavelength data for hundreds of millions of objects located beyond the Milky Way galaxy. This service searches NED's master list of astronomical objects for entries near an object having an IAU-style positional name. There are two interpreters for the IAU-style positional names: - one uses a strict interpretation of the IAU conventions; - the other is more liberal in its assumptions concerning rounding and truncation of positional names.
