Congratulations on the discovery of new portion of pulsars!
Can you post its names? It is difficult to guess that J1909+12 — seventh and J2005+26 — eighth radio pulsar in PALFA data. Names of ninth and tenth discovered pulsars are still unknown for us :).

Hi evatutin, the newly

Hi evatutin,

the newly discovered pulsars are J1914+14, J1922+11, and J2005+26. You can find more details for these pulsars on the webpage Bruce mentioned. On this page you can also find out which lucky volunteer contributed to the discovery of which pulsar.

Cheers,
Ben

P.S.: I just realized there's a typo in the table. The date for J2005+26 is "08/01/2012". We'll fix that soon.

Congratulations to all

Congratulations to all contributers.
It confirms my personell assumption of finding one new pulsar per 1000 beams.
Let's go on and find more.
