A very nice collection. Seldom seen but well worth it.

Very interesting!  I do really fancy doing some actual astronomical science... Must take some serious plate solving to pick out the targets from the background (if thats how you do it? I've no idea!)

Their positions are known. The difficulty araises due to their magnitude and close proximity to Jupiter.
