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 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
Clusters of Stars

Observation Notes
1501 CAM PLNNB 04 07.0 +60 55 12.0 56"X48" 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.
1502 CAM OPNCL 04 07.7 +62 20 5.7 8.0' 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.
1961 CAM SBp 05 42.2 +69 23 11.5 4.5'X4.5' H III 747 Pretty faint, pretty large, Elongated 3 X 2 in PA 90, brighter in the middle and somewhat mottled at 100X.
2403 CAM Sc 07 36.8 +65 37 9.5 17.8' 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.
2655 CAM S(B)a 08 55.6 +78 13 11.5 6.5'X5.8' 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.
