Hershel 400 Objects in Camelopardalis
|Abbreviations in the CON column are the IAU versions.
|The column TYPE has following abbreviations:
|OPNCL = open cluster
||PLNNB = planetary nebula
||GLOCL = globular cluster
||CL+NB = open cluster and nebulosity
||BRTNB = bright emission or reflection nebula
|Hubble Classification for galaxies or GALXY where no
|In the Herschel Column
the Classes are:
|I = Bright Nebulae
||III = Very Faint Nebulae
||V = Very Large
|VII = Pretty Much Compressed
Clusters of Large or Small Stars
|II = Faint Nebulae
||IV = Planetary Nebulae
||VI = Very Compressed and Rich Clusters
||VIII = Coarsely Scattered
Clusters of Stars
||H IV 53
|| Bright, Large, round at 165X. The central star
comes and goes at lower powers but is held steady at 270X. This planetary
is a light blue disk at all powers. There are some dark markings within
the disk, somewhat like the Eskimo Nebula in Gemini.
||H VII 47
|| Bright, large, and pretty rich at 100X. There
are 27 stars counted in the cluster with several bright pairs and
a nice blue and gold double on the north east side. This somewhat
scattered open cluster is easy in the 11X80 finder.
||H III 747
|| Pretty faint, pretty large, Elongated 3 X 2
in PA 90, brighter in the middle and somewhat mottled at 100X.
||H V 44
|| Bright, large and elongated 1.5X1 in PA 135
degrees at 135X. This object is bright enough to be seen with the
11X80 finderscope. There are several stars involved with faint spiral
structure in the outer sections in this lovely galaxy. The middle
is gradually much brighter. From the darkest sites, the spiral arms
of this galaxy shimmer and sparkle with mottling.
||H I 288
|| Bright, pretty large and little elongated at
135X. This galaxy is much brighter in the middle with a bright central
nucleus at 220X.
