    Presented with an authority that has stood for generations, "Norton's Star Atlas and Reference Handbook" remains the indispensable companion for all who gaze at the night sky. Although there are thousands of deep sky objects observed by astronomers, only a small number of these are commonly observed by a wide audience. Celestial Objects for Common Telescopes, You may contribute your observations to their database, and generate your own observing list interactively from their facilities. Throughout, succinct fundamental principles and practical tips guide the reader into the night sky. Three distant stellar clusters found on ESO blue survey plates.

    This list was intended for intermediately experienced and equipped observes. Discovery of three obscured globular clusters. Thus, coverage here is limited to approximately of the most commonly observed objects in the Northern Hemisphere and — an enhancement for the Second Edition — approximately 50 of those in the Southern Hemisphere.
