Hershel 400 Objects in Puppis


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
2421 PUP OPNCL 07 36.3 -20 37 8.3 10.0' H VII 67 Pretty bright, pretty large, pretty rich, somewhat compressed, 28 stars of mags 11 and dimmer counted at 135X.
2422 PUP OPNCL 07 36.6 -14 30 4.4 30.0' H VIII 38 Very bright, very large, not compressed, scattered group with several bright stars of 8th magnitude and more to fill in the backround, 44 stars counted at 100X. This nice cluster is easy in the 11 X 80 finder, there are several stars resolved. Struve 1121 is a double star near the center of M-47, it is a mag 7/7.5 pair, sep 7", it is easily split at 100X.
2423 PUP OPNCL 07 37.1 -13 52 6.7 19.0' H VII 28 Large, pretty bright, pretty rich, pretty compressed, 33 stars counted at 100X. Nice binary star in the center with both components a lovely dark yellow.
2438 PUP PLNNB 07 41.8 -14 44 11.0 65" H IV 39 Bright, large, elongated 1.2 X 1 in PA 135, the central star is easy at 100X. Raising the power to 440X brings out several dimmer stars involved in the nebula. Also at the higher power the shape of the planetary is seen to be an incomplete ring, somewhat like a horseshoe. This bright rim is about 270 degrees around and is dimmest on the north side. I have always seen this planetary nebula as light green in color.
2440 PUP PLNNB 07 41.9 -18 13 11.5 54"X20" H IV 64 Bright, pretty large, much brighter in the middle, elongated 3X1 in PA 30 at 270X. The central star will become stellar in moments of good seeing but most of the time it is just a bright area in the center of this planetary. Averted vision will about double the size of the nebula. It was immediately recognized as non-stellar at 100X. This nebula is a nice lime green at all powers.
2479 PUP OPNCL 07 55.1 -17 43 9.6 7.0' H VII 58 Pretty bright, pretty large, pretty rich, somewhat compressed, 10 stars of mags 11 and 12 with many faint backround stars at 100X.
2482 PUP OPNCL 07 54.9 -24 18 7.3 12.0' H VII 10 Pretty bright, pretty large, pretty rich, somewhat compressed, 26 stars counted at 100X. This cluster has stars of mags 11 to 13 in an outline that is elongated 3X1 NW-SE.
2489 PUP OPNCL 07 56.2 -30 04 7.9 8.0' H VII 23 Bright, pretty large, pretty rich, not compressed, 31 stars in nice chains counted at 100X. Seen in 11X80 finder.
2509 PUP OPNCL 08 00.7 -19 04 9.3 8.0' H VIII 1 Bright, pretty large, pretty rich, compressed, 39 stars of mags 10 to 13 counted at 100X. This cluster can just be seen in the 11X80 finder.
2527 PUP OPNCL 08 05.3 -28 10 6.5 22.0' H VIII 30 Bright, very large, pretty rich, somewhat compressed, 36 stars of mags 9 to 13 fill the field with nice chains at 100X.
2539 PUP OPNCL 08 10.7 -12 50 6.5 22.0' H VII 11 Bright, large, rich, elongated 2X1, 65 stars of mags 10 to 13 counted at 100X. 19 PUP is on the south side of this cluster. It is a wide triple star, easy at 100X and yellow with two white comes.
2567 PUP OPNCL 08 18.3 -30 38 7.4 10.0' H VII 64 Pretty bright, pretty large, pretty rich, 42 stars counted at 135X. There are several nice, curved chains of stars within this cluster.
2571 PUP OPNCL 08 18.9 -29 44 7.0 13.0' H VI 39 Pretty bright, pretty large, pretty rich, somewhat compressed, 30 stars of mags 9 to 13 counted at 135X.
