What does the "R" in procedural object designations (RS, RG, RN etc.) stand for? Romanyuk? Random? Or if already answered in forum, where? A search on "RS " (for example) turned up nothing....

Random I guess. Makes sense since they aren't locations of real (catalog) stars, nebulae, and galaxies.

Theres some information about procedural naming of objects here in the manual if you want to know some more about it.

Random. However, it should be renamed to P (Procedural)...

No, keep it as R. R is a nice letter smile
