Top Ten Messier Objects

for the month December 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 December 1997, the statistics was only marginally eveluated because of maintainer's absence, so that the usual number analysis is impossible, and we give the Top 10 sequence only, based on the available data:
