Phil, while I always enjoy your columns, I think this is one of my favorites.

Thanks!

Thanks, Jim! I really appreciate that. I've been a Messier Marathoner for years, and have always tried to encourage others to join in the event. In fact, my very first article published in a major magazine was about running the marathon! (Sky & Tel, January 1985)

Thank you once again Phil for a comprehensive yet easy to understand article. I for one enjoy following your viewing programs and this one is especially all-inclusive.
Clear skies, and remember what Jack said,"Keep looking up."

I'll mention it to the webmaster, but meanwhile the checklist is available as part of the PDF version of the article, which you can download here.

Or directly as an attachment to this message.
