three more quasars

Considered Ian's query again, about an unknown quasar.

Typed "visible quasars" into Google and it returned a bunch of hits. Dove into the article "Far, Far Away—Getting Started in Quasar Observing" by Christopher Sarnecki on the University Lowbrow Astronomers web site.

Three new candidates!
  • PHL 1811 at magnitude 13.8 in Capricornus
  • MSH 04-12, 14.9, Eridanus
  • Markarian 205, 14.5, Draco
Made a note to add them to my SkyTools list.
