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 May 1998, again, the logs for a small number of days were lost. The most frequently accessed object page was, as usual, that of M31 at 2151 counted accesses, 10-th rank M83 was at 647 logged accesses, and the least accessed object page of M93 with a score of 135. Rarely enough, M1 was overrun from its almost-always certain place 2 by M57 this month.
