    Default "Deep Sky Objects Illustrated Observing Guide" PDF download



    So, can you tell the weather totally bites around here? I'm digging up reference material and making 'plans'.

    Somewhat related to my other post on the "planetary nebulae..." observing, this is a nice little reference guide I actually did have printed and spiraled a few years ago. Some great sketching images and tons of useful data. Actually one of my favorite references I return to time after time.

    The full download is here: http://www.deepskywatch.com/files/ds...guide-full.pdf

    And the main page where you can select different sections if you wish: Illustrated DSO Guide - Deep Sky Watch

    Enjoy!

    Hey Frankie,

    I love that guide, so much so that I converted it to an all-black background so I can use it on screen at night (the white version kind of ruins your night vision). Those images are really handy when you are on the "manual" prowl through the sky.

    Cheers,
    JT
