     You've been able to do this (and much else) using either the Strasbourg
VizieR or NED for a couple of years now.  The dataset Frybarger seems to
be using is the Harvard "UZC" (Updated Zwicky Catalogue), which was loaded
into NED---along with thousands of corrections!---last year.  If the 
original UZC is what's being offered, then there are large numbers of
galaxies misidentified, poor positions etc.  When things are correct, the
data are okay, and positions good to a few arcsec.
