The TAC Eye Candy List, official and fun
« on: April 11, 2015, 03:55:32 PM »
Marko alluded to this list above in his Popular Well Recognized thread. It came up yesterday in conversation at a starparty. Jane Smith, Joe Bob Jardine, Jeff Crilly and I put this together. Want to have the link show on the help pages.

The TAC Eye Candy List is a compilation between the Saguaro and RASC lists, all objects included, duplications taken out. We added the Steve Caron 100 list, cool set of post-Messier DSO's put together by a brilliant kid who used to come out with us. Crilly, Jardine, Smith and I added some favorites we couldn't leave out. So we have a list of the 200 or so prettiest deepsky objects past the Messiers.

Every one of these objects is pretty in a 6 or 8 inch scope. DDK sez check it out. You can bet Joe Bob sez the same.

I'm grateful this link is durable.
