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 March 1998, the access rate reached a high of about and on some days significantly over 40,000 daily accesses. Unfortunately, I lost again a considerable number of days, more than a week, so that the logged access numbers are quite low and not as representative as usual. The most accessed object page was again that of M31 at 2302 counted accesses, 10-th rank M8 counted 755 logged accesses, and the least accessed object page of M68 still 139.
