    Default Another Observing List Generator



    I was playing around with 'A Darker View' list generator, and seems to be decent.
    Take a look, it may be useful to some:

    I agree.
    One thing, no matter which one used, there are discrepancies concerning the object type.
    I find this mostly with carbon stars. So I always double and triple check from other sources to make sure I'm observing the correct information.
