Alternate names for deep sky objects
      #5952583 - 07/03/13 06:38 AM

Whenever I show my wife an image I'm working on, she always seems to see something about it in a different way than most people it seems.. or perhaps others have seen the same thing. Keep in mind she doesn't know anything about astronomy and she's hasn't heard the common names of these objects. I'll often show her the image and ask her what she thinks before telling her the 'common' name. Here's what she's come up with so far:

IC5070 - Pterodactyl
IC1396 - Dementor
IC410 - Conception
M27 - Apple core
IC1848 - Buffalo

Mine just glances to humor me and says "that's nice..."

Mine usually just says Yay or Nay to whether I can hang it on the wall.
