    Default 100 most spectacular sky wonders



    I was rummaging through my astronomy stuff and came across a magazine I had forgoten about. It is Astronomy magazines 100 most spectacular sky wonders. It has the 100 said objects arranged by the date they are best viewed. Each item is described with detailed information on how to find them. It also includes other DSO's in that same region. If you can find a copy I recomend getting one.

    Sorry about not including more info. The date is June 17, 2008. You can order back issues at the regular price. Here is a link Kalmbach Publishing: Astronomy: Astronomy Magazine Special Issues: 100 Most Spectacular Sky Wonders

    Many of the objects are best seen with large scopes, but there are several that can be viewed with smaller scopes. There are also a few for our southern hemisphere friends (so I guess I won't be viewing all 100 items).

    if only there was a device of sorts that could "scan" pages so that "someone" could post the objects for "other people" to view on a page that was accessible to everyone "world wide". . .

    I could post the objects mentioned, but scanning and posting could cross over into copyright infringement.
    I may post information on the objects (as I am doing with Astronomy Hacks - which I haven't finished posting); that would allow me to share the info with you without worrying about copyrights. I would still recomend getting a copy if you can.

    yeah, posting the objects would be great, I didnt realize the whole magazine was dedicated to that, I was thinking it was just an insert or something.
