Hershel 400 Objects in Gemini


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
2129 GEM OPNCL 06 01.0 +23 18 6.7 7.0' H VIII 26 Pretty bright, pretty small, not compressed, 22 stars counted at 100X, just seen in 11 X 80 finderscope.
2158 GEM OPNCL 06 07.5 +24 06 8.6 5.0' H VI 17 Pretty bright, pretty small, very compressed, arrowhead shape. I counted 12 stars and saw a very grainy backround at 165X on a night I rated 7/10.
2266 GEM OPNCL 06 43.2 +26 58 9.5 7.0' H VI 21 Pretty bright, pretty small, rich, much compressed and resolved at 100X. I counted 50 stars at 135X.
2304 GEM OPNCL 06 55.0 +18 01 10.0 5.0' H VI 2 Faint, pretty small, somewhat compressed, not much at 100X. I counted 11 stars in a 5 arcmin area, shaped like a comma or Corona Borealis cluster.
2355 GEM OPNCL 07 16.9 +13 47 9.7 9.0' H VI 6 Pretty bright, pretty large, much compressed at 100X. Just seen in 11 X 80 finderscope. I counted 80 stars with a bright yellow star near the center of this cluster.
2371 GEM PLNNB 07 25.6 +29 29 13.0 74"X54" H II 316 Bright, pretty large, box shaped at 100X. High power shows much structure. The southeast end in much brighter and the central star is seen at 220X. This planetary is grey in color at all powers.
2372 GEM PLNNB 07 25.6 +29 29 13.0 74"X54" H II 317 Bright, pretty large, box shaped at 100X. High power shows much structure. The southeast end in much brighter and the central star is seen at 220X. This planetary is grey in color at all powers.
2392 GEM PLNNB 07 29.2 +20 55 8.6 47"X43" H IV 45 Bright, large, round and somewhat annular at 100X. The central star is easy and this planetary is light green at all powers. The "Eskimo" features are seen at 220X and are somewhat better at 320X on a night I rated 8/10 for seeing and contrast.
2395 GEM OPNCL 07 27.1 +13 35 8.0 12.0' H VIII 11 Bright, pretty large, elongated 2 X 1, resolved at 100X, approximately 50 stars in a nice cluster.
2420 GEM OPNCL 07 38.5 +21 34 8.3 10.0' H VI 1 Pretty bright, pretty large, somewhat compressed, 30 stars at 135X. Several nice star chains on involved with an "oatmeal" backround of fainter stars.
