Top Ten Messier Objects

for the month August 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 August 1997, activities continued at a slightly increasing summer level. Again some days were lost because of non-continuous logging. This month, first-rank M31 counted 1899 logged accesses, while the least accessed object page, that of M93, counted 100 logged accesses.
