OK - here's the entire list of 63 object which I found - many were just
"round faint fuzzies", so many of the descriptions sound similar - you
might want to cull out some of the brighter objects or just post the entire
list as a project.  In some cases there is a second observation which I had
earlier made with a 13".  The 17.5" observations go back to the middle
'80's, so they could certainly use updating!
