Visual impressions of the Deep Sky

Observations, listed by increasing right ascension.


Field name is the object's catalog name,
Field C is the catalog the object came from.

Field T denotes the telescope used,

Field L denotes the location. P: Pinnacles overlook,
B: Little Tycho Observatory, LBRP: Little Bennett Regional Park

Coordinates are J2000.

Doubles give the magnitudes, position angle, and separation of the pair from the most recent observations in the Washington double star catalog.

In the rare cases where the pair has a computed orbit, the position angle and separation from the orbital elements given by the Sixth Catalog of Orbits of Visual Binary Stars.
