Among the first eight years' worth of Wilson Awards (1999-2006), 17 awards went to visual discoverers of comets, 10 awards went to CCD discoverers, and one award went to a photographic discoverer of a comet. (Here, an "award" is taken to mean one full award, meaning that some teams of two people -- in cases of CCD discoveries -- represent single cash awards that are split evenly between the team members, even though each member gets their own award plaque.)
