Hershel 400 Objects in Bootes


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 classification existed.

In the Herschel Column the Classes are:
I = Bright Nebulae III = Very Faint Nebulae V = Very Large
Nebulae
VII = Pretty Much Compressed
Clusters of Large or Small Stars
II = Faint Nebulae IV = Planetary Nebulae VI = Very Compressed and Rich Clusters of Stars VIII = Coarsely Scattered

Observation Notes
5248 BOO Sc 13 37.4 +08 53 11.4 6.8'X5.0' H I 34 Bright, Large, elongated 2.5 X 1 in PA 135. Has a very bright middle and an almost stellar nucleus at 135X. Averted vision increases the size of galaxy quite a bit and also shows off some beautiful mottling in the outer arm regions.
5466 BOO GLOCL 14 05.5 +28 32 9.1 11.0' H VI 9 Pretty bright, large, little elongated 1.5 X 1 in PA 15, somewhat like a heart shape, pretty rich and compressed at 165X. 28 stars counted on a night I rated 7/10 for seeing. Even though this globular has a bright core, it is still a pretty low surface brightness object, kind of like Omega Centauri in a 2".
5557 BOO E1 14 18.3 +36 29 12.2 2.2'X2.0' H I 99 Pretty bright, pretty large, little elongated 1.5 X 1 in PA 90 and much brighter in the middle with an almost stellar nucleus at 165X.
5676 BOO Sc 14 32.8 +49 27 11.7 4.0'X1.7' H I 189 Pretty bright, pretty large, much elongated 3X1 in PA 45 and brighter in the middle at 100X. Going to 165X will show off a stellar nucleus and some nice mottling on a sharp night.
5689 BOO SBa 14 35.5 +48 44 12.7 4.0'X1.1' H I 188 Pretty bright, pretty large, much elongated 3 X 1 in PA 90 and much brighter in the middle at 100X. NGC 5693 is to the south and it is faint, small, round and not brighter in the middle.
