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 February 1998, a high access rate of over 30,000 daily accesses was observed for the SEDS Messier pages, but again, some days were lost. The most accessed object page of M31 scored 2654 logged accesses, 10-th rank M8 712 logged accesses, and the least accessed object page of M80 still 114.
