Pinwheel Perfection

edge-ons were omitted. The Herschel 400 observing list was
designed for the 6-inch Newtonians that amateurs commonly used decades ago, but these days most serious deepsky observers opt for bigger instruments. I believe that the
Herschel 400 list should be updated so that it actually offers
the bright and best deep-sky objects beyond the Messiers for
Northern Hemisphere observers.

NGC 5204, a spiral 3.5° north of Mizar, is a more distant
member of the M101 Group. My 16-inch shows a large oval,
elongated by 3:1. It's only a very little bit brighter in the middle, with a very faint nucleus. There are knots or faint stars at
both ends of the long axis. Herschel classified it as Class IV,
which corresponds to his category of "Planetary Nebulae,
Stars with Burs, with Milky Way Chevelure, with Short Rays,

The asterisk denotes M101 Group members. Angular sizes are from recent catalogs. Visually, an object's size is often smaller than the cataloged value and varies
according to the aperture and magnification of the viewing instrument. Right ascension and declination are for equinox 2000.0.
