Hi all, Thank you for your interest Kuratkull.

Most of the prime lists I found were at least an overnight calculation.

I used the isprime() function in Maple and it is quite slow. But easy to use. I only learned 3 computer languages - Pascal, Maple, and HTML. I spent over two months of computer calculation back in 2006 to come up with some original calculations of shortest prime constellations. Lets look at the 9-tuples - in the OEIS.org/A022546. These are linked from "Search for Prime Constellations.pdf" file in this thread.

I did 200 prime number entries in the sequence. Then Dana Jacobsen did 800 more, taking the list to 1,000.

Now Normah Luhn has taken the lists even further and is actively working on it in 2021.
see http://www.pzktupel.de/ktuplets.htm
check line 27. List of the smallest prime k-tuplets.

Cheers
Matt
