Priority list

A few days ago I sent some observations of V704 And, but bad weather avoid me from continuing.

I would like to know if the list of objects has been published according to their priority, that is, the most urgent at the top, and the low priority at the bottom.

Thank you in advance.

Priority list

Hi Mario,

The list has been ordered according to the targets' RA and there are only two classes of priorities (first and second). Within each class, targets have equal priority among each other. The only difference is that targets flagged as "first" have higher priority compared to those flagged as "second".

I hope this is helpful :)
