The List

All objects are listed in Right Ascension order so that you can view them as they rise, and so that you can properly plan your observing sessions to make the most of your limited time. Information provided on each object includes: Catalog Number, Right Ascension, Declination, Magnitude, Position Angle if the object is a galaxy, Type of Object, Size, Constellation, and what chart they are located on in both the Uranometria and Tirion's Sky Atlas 2000. Notes are provided on a few objects to clarify their observation.

We hope that you have a chance to observe the glorius southern skies. They are indeed enough to take your breath away. The Magellanic Clouds alone are worth the trip to the Southern Hemisphere. If you are fortunate enough to find yourself south of the equator, we hope that you find this list useful. Good luck, clear skies, and good observing.
