The Avedisova star formation regions and the BFS (Brand, Fich and Stark) nebulae
This page lists the Avedisova star formation regions associated with the BFS (Brand, Fich and Stark) nebulae. The region location is linked to a page summarising the data on the star formation region. The nebulae and most referenced object names are both linked to their SIMBAD pages. In many cases the nebulae and the most referenced object in the region will be the same, but not always. Each line also lists the number of components for the region, the SIMBAD suggested type for the most referenced object, and the number of bibliographic references for the most referenced object.
SIMBAD cross reference and type information is not always accurate, so this information should be treated cautiously. It is best to read the bibliographic references for the object to get the latest and most accurate information.
