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
2419 LYN GLOCL 07 38.1 +38 53 10.4 4.1' H I 218 pretty bright, pretty large, round and much brighter in the middle, it is easy at 100X. At any power up to 270X at the best sights in Arizona there is no resolution in either my 13" or my old 17.5". The best I can do is get three levels of condendsation across a very mottled face on the best of nights. The brightest stars are something like 19th magnitude, so it may take a 40 inch to resolve this distant cluster. I will send in a description once A.J. and I get our one meter up and working.
2683 LYN Sb 08 52.7 +33 25 11.0 9.2'X2.6' H I 200 bright, pretty large, much elongated east-west and much brighter in the middle at 100X.
2782 LYN Sb 09 14.1 +40 07 12.5 4.2'X3.2' H I 167 Pretty faint, pretty small, round, much brighter in the middle with a bright nucleus at 100X.
