    Great job, Bill...and great document! You obviously spent much time and effort putting it together. I plan to pass it along to some of the members of our local astronomy program here in Culpeper. As one who completed the AL 100 list with my 60mm, f/15 and 100mm, f15 refractors I certainly understand the value...and fun...using the smaller scopes.

    Great article, Bill, thanks for posting that A new project for my 60 & 80mm's (don't have a 70). Reading through it, I know I've seen a few on your list. Great descriptions/directions, thanks again!

    Fantastic document Bill! It is obvious the effort put forth creating that document versus just a table with nothing but a star name and coordinates. I am an astronomy newbie with a go-to mount and could simply enter the coordinates to find the target. But your work provides a real learning tool to really get to know the sky. Thanks again for providing such an opportunity.

    Great work on your project. I'm a casual observer of AL doubles with my SW100ED and SkyTools. I hope to catch a few tonight in Lyr and Cyg from my balcony.

    I have not looked at this thread in a while. Several people have left comments. For all of you that said thank you, you are most welcome! You are the reason that I wrote those things down and I appreciate your use of it. I am glad that you like it. That makes me happy.

    I'll echo what others have written: A marvelous contribution, rich with insight and tips. I'm looking forward to exploring it, both inside on a comfortable sofa and outside under the stars!
