In the Works:
*not all 190 are possible -- at least 24 are too far south to be seen from my location, 32 are dim& tiny (around M31, M110 or M33),  54 are magnitude 14.0 or below and as such are too dim to be seen with my available optics ....80-90 would be great and the remaining ones are going to be tough.

**redo via imaging

***seeing more will be tough.  They are ordered N to S and the rest are very low or always below the horizon.

****The program lists 290+ targets.  Many are too far south or dim to see from my location.  Seeing 175 in the list might be possible.
