Talk:Lynds Target Selection
Hi All, I've been checking pic's and last reported on LND's and I think these are good selections...not much written on LDN 880. I agree with Rebull that LDN 880. I think we should consider...LDN 1225 next choice. I am looking forward to talking to ya tomorrow. I will have leopard up and coolwiki. John --Schaefers 17:52, 20 January 2008 (PST) Dear All

Ok so I deleted bad formated data below and will try posting the excel file.
I hope you all made it home safe and sound.
Wednesday night as I was driving home the sky was GREAT. Very dark and the Milky Way sure stood out. I looked but did not see any nebula. :)
Using http://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov I did a search and got a list of Lynds nebula with ra, dec, cloud area in degrees squared and rating of opacity.
I placed list on excel and sorted by opacity and then area.
Hopefully the list will be below for all 6 and 5 lens nebula.
Does any one know about what area we can look at in 1 hour?
name, ra, dec, cloud area (degree squared), area in arcmin squared I think, opacity
LDN 53 17 23 08.90 -23 54 47.2 0.001 3.6 6
