NGC 1573 is an elliptical galaxy in the constellation of Camelopardalis.[2] It was discovered on 1 August 1883 by Wilhelm Tempel.[4] It was described as "very faint, small" by John Louis Emil Dreyer, the compiler of the New General Catalogue.[4] It is located about 190 million light-years (58 megaparsecs) away.[2]

The galaxy PGC 16052 is not a NGC object, nor is it physically associated with NGC 1573, but is often called NGC 1573A. It is an intermediate spiral galaxy with an apparent magnitude of about 14.0.[4] In 2010, a supernova was discovered in PGC 16052 and was designated as SN 2010X.[5]
