    The object name that you submitted is not currently recognized
    by the NED name interpreter.
    In general, naming conventions employ a prefix (usually an
    acronym for the first author(s) or the survey name) followed
    by a numerical string based on a tabular sequence or a position
    on the sky. For more specifics, see the document at
    Based on your input, we have listed below a number of
    possibilities that NED does recognize that reasonably may
    include your object/survey and its standardized naming
    convention in NED.
