Details on Acronym:   MaNGA
   MaNGA (Mapping Nearby Galaxies at Apache Point Observatory) Write:<<MaNGA NN-NNNNNNNNN>>
<<MaNGA ID NN-NNNNN>> (not recognised by Simbad, but found in literature) N: ? Object:G + *  (SIMBAD class: Unknown = Object of Unknown Nature) Note:Mapping Nearby Galaxies at APO (Apache Point Observatory) is a survey component of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Its goal is to map the detailed composition and kinematic structure of 10000 nearby galaxies. MaNGA uses integral field unit (IFU) spectroscopy to measure spectra for hundreds of points within each galaxy.

The format NN-NNNNNNNNN is the combination of the catalog ID and the line number ("CatalogID-LineNumber").
The format NNNNN-NNNNN is composed of the plate ID and the IFU design ID ("plate-ifudsgn").

In bright time, the MaNGA instrument has been used to observe stars for MaNGA Stellar Library (MaStar), to build a comprehensive optical stellar spectral library with which to calibrate the galaxy observations.
For more information on this stellar library, visit the MaStar survey page (https://www.sdss.org/surveys/mastar/).
