SEDS Messier Pages Complete Icon Reference

Individual object icons usually lead to the corresponding object's main page (see e.g. our object index, data file, the object index sorted by constellation, or the supplementary pages for the objects), and in many cases it is clear from the context where certain icons are linked to. Moreover, several icons occur for which the link may be not so obvious (unless you try); a hopefully complete list of them is given below:
