      The remnant of Supernova 1006 in Lupus, which I dubbed Bin Ridwan's Star, after the Egyptian astronomer Ali bin Ridwan, who wrote a description of it.

                      Two galaxies in Canes Venatici: The Whale (NGC 4631) along with its companion galaxy NGC 4627 just above it (do we call it the Remora Galaxy? the Pequod Galaxy?) and the Hockey Stick Galaxy (NGC 4656) at lower left.

                        The Gum Nebula (NGC 2736, or Gum 12) in Vela and Puppis. Its nickname has nothing to do with chewing gum; it's named for its discoverer, an Australian astronomer named Colin Stanley Gum.
