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 November 1997, access activities stay at a stable level of over 25,000 accesses daily. Again, some days were lost (especially end of month as consequence of maintainer's absence). This month, first-rank M31 counted 2837 logged accesses, 3 objects were hit more than 1000 times, 10th rank M6 counted 563, and the least accessed object page, that of M75, counted 128 logged accesses.
