- Observing Handbook and Catalogue of Deep-Sky Objects | Astromart.
Each volume has something unique to offer, and read at leisure provides an almost inexhaustible source of learning and discovery. Yet, the whole library is of little use under the dark sky, behind an eyepiece, while attempting to acquire an object. What Phil discusses makes common sense; a relaxing, enjoyable hour with the reference volumes under daylight will save hours of time under the night sky.
Observing Handbook and Catalogue of Deep-Sky Objects
I have done something similar, usually at the beginning of an observing year or season. Constellation, by constellation, I compile the pertinent facts from each resource to generate a succinct and personally tailored observing list. It saves loads of time and frustration. The greatest benefit of all is more time looking at objects.
Thanks Phil, for taking the time to suggest an enjoyable way to get more productivity out of our precious observing hours. Your list of reference books are classics that many of us also own. Would you be willing to share your spreadsheet with others?

Thanks for your comment, Joe. I would like to publish my targets as an Observing Handbook, so I am not willing to send out the whole spreadsheet yet. I need some feedback. Send me your email address at my icycomet email above. Thanks for your interest, Phil. Phil, Have you had your book published yet? I think your idea is a winner. Stock Image.
