The List of Objects

There are actually two lists, one for deep sky objects, and another for double and variable stars. All objects are listed in Right Ascension order so that you can view them as they rise in the East and set in the West.

Information provided on each deep sky object includes: Catalog Number, Right Ascension, Declination, Magnitude, Messier Designation (if any), Type of Object, Size, Constellation, and what chart they are located on in both the Uranometria and Tirion's Sky Atlas 2000.

Information provided on the double and variable stars includes: Object, Right Ascension, Declination, and Magnitude and Separation of the components.
