Not a bad idea, guys.. There's already an IIS Observing Log Template, but not a list of objects as a "challenge" type thing.

An online entry form would be good a idea, with a page showing who's filled it out, where they're up to etc.

Leave it with me and I'll add it to the "to do" list..

Thanks Mike, that will be great if you can do that (we all know time is the biggest problem), we just don't ever seem to have enough of it

Glenc .... I downloaded your file and saw it was over 4 pages, I did a simple modification of changing the text size from 11 to 10 and decreased the top and bottom borders down to 1 cm and it fits nicely on 3 pages.

Not sure if it will print out without giving an outside margins print message but just click ok to that anyway and it still prints.

Does anyone know where I can find only Hartung's object list on a spreadsheet somewhere? I'm only interested in a compiled list from his book.

ta, Glen. Thanks what I was looking for also. My good copy of Hurtung's is starting to show a little wear from being put through the photocopier.

Southern Gems

This is the southern equivalent to the Messier Catalogue.
"In Southern Gems, Stephen James O'Meara makes a detour beneath the southern skies, presenting a fresh list of 120 deep-sky objects for southern hemisphere stargazers to observe. Showcasing many exceptional objects catalogued by the pioneering observer James Dunlop, known as the 'Messier of the southern skies', all are visible through small-to moderate-sized telescopes or binoculars under dark skies."
