2017 DSOs

The rules list a DSO called 'Henize 2-248' however a quick google search shows that the real object is called 'Henize 2-428.' I'll send in a rules clarification, but for now I've edited the page to say 2-428. Magikarpmaster629 (talk) 9:03, 9 September 2016 (CST)

     EDIT: soinc.org confirmed that it is Henize 2-428 and not Henize 2-248 https://www.soinc.org/official_rules_clarif

Apparent Magnitude

Does anyone happen to know how/where to find the apparent magnitude? I haven't been able to find it anywhere... 49ers (talk) 21:46, 9 November 2012 (CST)

Some objects, like large nebulae and such, aren't going to really have magnitudes because they're so large and varied. Specific objects or areas might have magnitudes, but for the entire DSO you may not find an official one. However, for the single objects that are just really obscure, there are ways. ;) Eaststroudsburg13 (talk) 16:14, 13 January 2013 (CST)
