Any unique deepsky websites for Perseus out there? new
      #5553663 - 12/04/12 09:59 AM

I'm not looking for a site with Messier objects, they're a dime a dozen. I'm looking for a website that's unique and has a list of peculiar clusters like an observing guide for a particular constellation. For example, The Night Sky Observers Guide has a unique list, but I'm looking for a website that's similar. Thanks!

Try Darker View Planner website. It is very good at generating deep sky objects (beyond the Messier Objs) by constellations. I'm sure there are other similar sites but this is one I familiar with.

Daniel,
Try this site . This site includes most of the viewable objects within each constellation. To view the objects in another constelation just click the constelation name in the list along the left side of the page.

Daniel,
You may also like to try this page . You can use any object in a constelation for searching and then scroll down to see the other objects in the constelation. Just click the object in the list that you are interested in to bring up the stats on that object at the top of the page. I am sure that you will enjoy playing with this page. Lot's of information here. There are three different size finder maps for each object as well as photos too.

Hi Daniel

I use this website a lot: http://www.virtualcolony.com/sac/ It creates individual lists for each constellation. You can filter by object type or catalogue and sort by RA, magnitude, object, U2000.0 page or surface brightness.


Clear skies!

Edward,

I'm just finally getting a chance to check through your link here and then I'll check the others provided by everyone. So far, I must say this is an amazing site. I especially like the images! Thank you.

This is helpful as well. Just in case I'm missing anything, does this site have images as well? Thanks

Yes. At the top of the page, above the description, it says DSS image:15x15, click that and after it loads, scroll to the bottom of the page.

Besides the others listed above, I use this one as well. I took a quick look at Perseus and they had over 50 NGC objects listed in it....Bob
