Hershel 400 Objects in Canes Venatici


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
4111 CVN GALXY 12 07.1 +43 05 11.4 4.3'X0.8' H I 195 Bright, pretty large, much elongated 3 X 1 in PA 165X, very bright middle with a bright nucleus. Has a companion to the East. This edge on galaxy is razor thin at 135X.
4143 CVN GALXY 12 09.7 +42 33 12.0 2.9'X1.8' H IV 54 Pretty bright, pretty large, much brigther in the middle, elongated 2 X 1 in PA 165 at 100X.
4151 CVN GALXY 12 10.6 +39 25 11.2 7.0'X6.0' H I 165 Pretty faint, Large, much brighter in the middle with an almost stellar nucleus, this round, face on galaxy has a low surface brightness at 135X and averted vision helps it quite a bit. There is an elongated companion to the north.
4214 CVN Ir 12 15.7 +36 20 10.3 11'X9.0' H I 95 Bright, pretty large, round, very much brighter in the middle with a bright nucleus at 100X. At 165X, it is unusual to see this round galaxy has an elongated nucleus at PA 45 degrees.
4258 CVN Sb 12 18.9 +47 19 9.6 22.0'X9.0' H V 43 Very bright, very large, very, very bright middle with an almost stellar nucleus. It is very much elongated 3 X 1 in PA 165. AT 135X this lovely galaxy sparkles with mottling.
4346 CVN GALXY 12 23.4 +47 00 12.3 3.2'X1.3' H I 210 Pretty bright, pretty large, much brighter in the middle and elongated 2 X 1 in PA 90 degrees at 100X.
4449 CVN Ir 12 28.2 +44 06 10.0 6.0'X4.5' H I 213 Bright, pretty large, elongated 2 X 1 in PA 45, little brighter in the middle with several stars involved. At 135X this irregular galaxy is very mottled.
4485 CVN Ir 12 30.5 +41 43 12.4 3.0'X2.5' H I 197 Pretty bright, pretty small, elongated 1.5 X 1 in PA 20, I never saw a connecting bridge to 4490.
4490 CVN GALXY 12 30.6 +41 39 10.1 7.0'X3.5' H I 198 Pretty bright, large, very much elongated 2.5 X 1 in PA 135, brighter middle at 100X.
4618 CVN GALXY 12 41.5 +41 10 11.5 4.5'X3.5' H I 178 Pretty bright, pretty large, much brighter in the middle and elongated 2 X 1 in PA 30 at 100X.
4631 CVN GALXY 12 42.1 +32 33 9.8 17.0'X3.5' H V 42 Very bright, very large, very much elongated 6 X 1 in PA 90, bright middle. At 100X this very mottled galaxy is a rather bizarre shape that members of the Saguaro Astronomy Club call "The Slug". It is just visible in the 11 X 80.
4656 CVN GALXY 12 43.9 +32 11 10.6 22.0'X3.0' H I 176 Bright, Large, very much elongated in PA 30, NGC 4657 is superimposed on the North end and makes this strange galaxy look like a hockey stick.
4800 CVN GALXY 12 54.5 +46 32 12.0 1.7'X1.2' H I 211 Bright, pretty small, very bright middle, little elongated 1.2 X 1 in PA 0. This object has a very high surface brightness.
5005 CVN Sb- II 13 11.0 +37 03 10.6 6.3'X3.0' H I 96 Bright, Large, much elongated 4 X 1 in PA 60. At 165X there is a nice dust lane and a somewhat elongated core with a stellar nucleus.
5033 CVN Sb 13 13.5 +36 36 10.9 11.5'X5.5' H I 97 Bright, large, very much elongated 4 X 1 in PA 0, with a bright, stellar nucleus and mottle arms at 135X.
5195 CVN P 13 30.1 +47 16 10.6 7'X5' H I 186 Pretty bright, pretty large, Irregularly round and much brighter in the middle at 135X. On the best of nights the connecting bridge to M51 is obvious and there are several dark markings across the face of this strange shaped object.
5273 CVN E1p 13 42.1 +35 38 12.7 2.8'X2.3' H I 98 Pretty faint, Pretty large, somewhat brighter middle, round, this low surface brightness galaxy is helped a lot by averted vision. There is a tough companion to the Southeast.
