The latest Australian Sky & Telescope has an article about observing all the objects found by William Herschel. If you want a shorter list of William and John Herschel objects see post #2.
393 of these objects are south of declination +45 and 30 of those are visible in March at 10pm..

The William & John Herschel 450 deep sky object (DSO) list is made up of:
73 Herschel open clusters brighter than magnitude 7.0
74 Herschel globular clusters
66 Herschel nebulae (some are also clusters)
58 Herschel planetary nebulae
161 Herschel galaxies brighter than magnitude 10.5 and
18 objects in the LMC, SMC, M31 and M33.
