1,088 John Herschel Objects

This 15.1 Mb pdf file contains images of 1,088 deep sky objects that were found by John Herschel with an
18.5 inch aperture speculum reflector when he was at the Cape, South Africa between 1834 and 1838.

I like NGC 646. The galaxy trio NGCs 6769, 6770, 6771 is only 1.1 degrees SE of the bright globular NGC 6752

The images were copied from http://www.ngcicproject.org/dss/dss_ngc.asp
