Hershel 400 Objects in Lacerta


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
7209 LAC OPNCL 22 05.2 +46 30 6.7 25.0' H VII 53 Bright, large, rich, pretty compressed in a 15 arc minute area at 100X. I counted 59 stars, many in lovely chains that fade out into a Milky Way backround. There is a smooth progression of magnitudes from 9th to 12th within this cluster.
7243 LAC OPNCL 22 15.3 +49 53 6.4 21.0' H VIII 75 Bright, large and not compressed at 100X. 29 stars were counted in this rather coarse cluster. A dark lane divides the cluster into 1/3 and 2/3 groups.
7296 LAC OPNCL 22 28.2 +52 17 9.7 4.0' H VII 41 Pretty bright, small and not compressed. I counted 18 stars at 200X. This group is fan-shaped and there is a nice yellow star at the apex of the fan.
