Top Ten Messier Objects

for the month September 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 September 1997, we see activities definitely coming out of the summer hole, with daily rates going to over 25,000 again toward this month's end. Again, some days were lost. This month, first-rank M31 counted 2302 logged accesses, while the least accessed object page, that of M68, counted 140 logged accesses.

Top ten objects in September 1997:

6 M57
