In the May 2011 issue of Astronomy, Douglasville, Georgia, amateur astronomer Richard Jakiel authored “How to observe high-energy galaxies.” In that story, Jakiel selected 14 Seyfert galaxies you can observe. But that’s hardly all of these galactic marvels. Here’s a table that contains 15 more, courtesy of the author.
