Tackling the Aintno - Part I

Tosteson, Dave
June 2009
Amateur Astronomy Magazine;Summer2009, Issue 62, p49
The author cites successful recording of visually impossible astronomical objects included in the Association of Invisible nebulae and Things Nobody Observes' (AINTNO) list. One of the achievements of astronomer Tim Parson was spotting the 15th magnitude galaxy just west of B33, in IC 434, and the 18.6 magnitude globular G132. The gamma-ray burster 030329 spotted by Riku Henriksson and Markus Tuukkanen is another notable achievement. The author also counted five objects in the Hubble Deep Field.
