Hershel 400 Objects in Draco


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
3147 DRA Sb 10 16.9 +73 24 11.3 4.7'X4.0' H I 79 Pretty bright, pretty large, little elongated, with a much brighter core at 100X. It is just seen in the 11X80 finder. In moments of good seeing at 135X, it has a stellar core.
5866 DRA E6p 15 06.5 +55 45 11.1 6.5'X3.0' H I 215 Bright, large, much elongated 3X2, much brighter middle at 165X. The dark lane has been easy on nights of good seeing and transparency. On mushy nights the dark lane is not seen at any power.
5907 DRA Sb+ 15 15.9 +56 19 11.4 12.8'X1.8' H II 759 Bright, large, very much elongated, bright middle at 100X. At 200X the core is gradually brighter with a stellar nucleus.
5982 DRA E3p 15 38.6 +59 21 12.4 3.9'X2.1' H II 764 Pretty bright, pretty small, little elongated 1.5 X 1 in PA 90 and much brighter in the middle at 135X.
6543 DRA PLNNB 17 58.6 +66 38 8.3 22"X16" H IV 37 Bright, large, elongated 1.8 X 1. The central star can be seen at all powers, but is stellar only on the best of nights. Using 250X to 320X there is much detail within the planetary. Two brighter curved areas give the impression of spiral strucure. The very center of the nebulosity does not get near the central star, somewhat like M-42, where the nebulosity has been blown away from the central Trapezium.
