Top Ten Messier Objects

for the month May 1997

Look at our most popular Messier object pages ! Here you find the top 10 accessed Messier Object pages; counted are accesses to the main page for each object.

Starting from June 1996, this Top 10 file is generated by a perl script, and therefore has become a bit more acurate. However, as there are probably some accesses missed or counted twice, so that I do not claim this is a really acurate ranking.

From January 1997, the acuracy of the listings profits from SEDS' success in generating a longer-term logfile, so that generally a higher and more consistent coverage of accesses is achieved.

In May 1997, there were several days not logged because of technical problems. M31 counted 1869 logged accesses, and the least accessed object page was that of M93, counting 109 accesses still.
