Hi Ben,

I have no idea of the format required for upload to Sky Safari.

If someone can tell me what format is needed for Sky Safari, I might be able to create the file for you.

Cheers

The Sky Safari FAQ gives some hints, see question 23:

Also, this might be useful:

Hi Gents

Thanks for your help.

John - a kind offer. I don't know how easy it would be as the Sky Safari format appears to have unique numbers assigned to each object - I can't tell if these are reserved to the program or are a more widely used astronomical reference. It might just be easiest for me to work with your existing formats for the list.

Regards

Ben

This question is answered in the FAQ above. Just put -1, -1 and SS will fill in the blanks (if it finds the object in any of its catalogues).

For anyone interested, I've created a SkySafari observing list for John's "Bambo's 600". There were a few objects which I could not get SkySafari to recognize, so let's call it "Bambo's 594, give or take".

Hi Patrick, will you be making the Skylist available to IIS members?

Michael.

I'll get in touch with Andrew (RocketBoy) who can contact Patrick and get it uploaded to the relevant thread under projects and articles (where all the other files are)

Cheers

Absolutely Michael, I tried to upload it in my message but the file type isn't recognized. Happy to email it (if it attaches) to anyone interested, and hopefully one of the mods can make it a sticky somewhere.

Hi all, hopefully there is a .zip file attached with the Bambo's 600 list attached as a .csv and .skylist file for SkySafari. There's also a .txt and .pdf file explaining a couple of minor discrepancies between John's original excel spreadsheet and what SkySafari has in its database of objects. Hope it works for you all. Thanks again to John for such a great list.

My list has been listed as a supplementary list to the Southern Skies Telescope Observing list with the Astronomical League (AL), on their website, for the past 14 years.

It's just had an UPGRADE.

The Astronomical League will now issue an endorsed certificate to anyone who has completed this list.

Is there anyone still around here on IIS who has completed the list, or pretty close to it ? If you send me a PM or an email, I can put you in touch with the Southern Skies observing program Co Ordinator at the AL to receive the certificate.

They will update their website within the coming weeks.

You don't need to be a member of the Astronomical League to receive the Certificate. Any Amateur Astronomer who has completed the list can receive the Certificate.

Cheers
John B
