The aim of the program is to catalogue emission lines in the visible range of various comets, compare them and possibly identify the many existing unknown lines. As a first step, we catalogued the lines in the spectrum of the comet 153P/Ikeya-Zhang and compared them with the lines already listed in existing catalogues. The comet was observed with SARG on the night 19-20 of April, 2002, with a short slit covering the spectral range of 4620-7920Å and with a resolving power R=57000, finding 8468 emission lines. Description: Catalog of emission lines of comet 153P/Ikeya-Zhang, obtained from a spectrum in the visible spectral range 4620-7920 Angstrom. The comet was observed on the night 19-20 April 2002 with the TNG telescope and the SARG echelle spectrograph using the slit 0.8x5.3 arcsecs providing a resolving power of 57000. The identification of the emissions was based on the catalog and the context plots of Cochran & Cochran (2002Icar..157..297C). In addition to the table we have prepared 28 plots of the 55 echelle orders showing all the emission lines catalogued. Each plot name is composed by the initials of the comet name (iz) and the number of the two orders plotted. File Summary:
