    Default Ha Milky Way Map



    Hi all,

    I've done up my large milky way mosaic as a map with clickable lookup
    references. There are lots of large-scale features, mainly large emission
    regions and large dark nebula clouds that remain unreferenced because I am
    having difficulty finding refrerences that are easily cross-referenced.
    then again, I suppose it's not an easy task!

    If you have a look and can identify any of these areas or know-of a good
    reference for me, please let me know. The page is here:

    Eddie,

    It is a terrific image, and one that I have returned to often.
    Perhaps the best place to start for references is Dave Riddle, whose
    knowledge of nebulae is among the best in amateur circles. His
    address is davecriddle-at-charter.net. Another option is to join the
    Amastro Yahoogroup that I moderate
    (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/amastro/). It is devoted narrowly to
    visual observing, but catalogue data and interpretation is related
    enough to be discussed often on our group.

    Thanks for that Tom!

    I can see this is going to take some time. I need to modify the existing
    number system to something that will take up less space to allow me to add
    more references and there are lots of large, bright.objects there that I
    would like to include.

    It's an ongoing project that I would like to make as thorough as possible so
    I will followup your suggestions.

    All the best,

    Eddie

    Good job!

    Now we just need someone to fill in the Northern Hemisphere bits.
    Sorry I can't help identify the missing mystery nebulae.

    Hi Paul,

    There is as much north of Sagittarius as there is south there. Some visitors
    to the map have not noticed the scrollbar beneath the map.

    I'm working on making this more noticeable.

    Eddie,

    I noticed the scrollbar. North of Saggitarius, your map only extends
    as far as Aquila. The Milky Way continues north of there, passing
    through Cygnus (the Cygnus Star Cloud is one of the major attractions
    in the MW), Perseus, Cassiopeia, then back South through Auriga,
    down into Puppis, Centaurus, and Crux. Those bits aren't in your map.

    -Paul W.
