Just wanted to point out a new observing guide for you deep sky hounds that would be great for armchair reading or at the field.

At DeepSkyForum.com, each week we post an Object of the Week (OOTW). I've compiled them into an observing guide complete with observing comments and notes of each object.

Take a look at my website here

It is about 3/4ths of the way down the page.

Your guides are fantastic, Alvin--a tremendous service to the deep-sky observing community. Thanks for all the work!

I love your observing guides. I notice that unlike last year's guide, this one doesn't have the date for each object. I guess you could figure it out from the week number, but I always thought the post date was very useful information.
