Look at our most popular Messier object pages ! Here you find the top 10 accessed Messier Object pages; counted are accesses to the main page for each object.
Starting from June 1996, this Top 10 file is generated by a perl script, and therefore has become a bit more acurate. However, as there are probably some accesses missed or counted twice, so that I do not claim this is a really acurate ranking.
From January 1997, the acuracy of the listings profits from SEDS' success in generating a longer-term logfile, so that generally a higher and more consistent coverage of accesses is achieved.
In June 1997, the summer season impacted and let the access rate go down significantly; also again some days were lost. Still, M31 counted 1677 logged accesses, and the least accessed object pages were those of M68 and M70, counting 96 accesses each.
