Good of you to revive this thread Glen, also received my S & T today and saw the article about the Herschel Hunt and thought to myself that it makes an interesting observing mission to hunt down the objects on the lists.
After the Lacaille , Dunlop and Messier lists it makes sense that the next mission could be the Herschels lists. A lot of the objects would obviously have already been ticked off as pat of the NGC / IC catalogues. Definitely will keep this in mind when pushing the dob around.
