As I type this, I am keeping an eye o the clearing sky outside as I have yet to nab 3C 273.
Assuming I am successful, what next? I need another quasar for y SAO project. I have reviewed everything on the following list:
but they are skewed to the northern hemisphere or too dim for me - I particularly like the look of 3C 279 but at mag 17.75 it would be a serious push for me.
Does anyone know how to access a list of quasars by constellation that is suitable for the southern hemisphere. I found one list that looked really useful till I realised that there is nothing on it south of -20.
