   KOSS (Kirshner+Oemler+Schechter+Shectman)= ([KOS83]) Write:<<KOSS HHMMSS.s+DDMMSS>>
<<KOSS SPN NNN>> N: 532 Object:G  (SIMBAD class: Galaxy) Note:G in 6 fields in the north and south galactic polar caps: NP5, NP7 and NP8 (North Pole) and SP4 to SP6 (South Pole). field NP5: N=108. field NP7: N=56. field NP8: N=85. field SP4: N=104. field SP5: N=104. field SP6: N=75. In 1983AJ.....88.1285K, the authors don't numbered the galaxies, so we use a format 'HHMMSS.s+DDMMSS'. Galaxies have been numbered later from 1 to NNN in each field (as ordered in 1983AJ.....88.1285K), in 1988AJ.....95.1629M, the authors used the second format 'FFN NNN'.
