Links- Double Star Lists & Sketches in this Forum
      #3367861 - 10/01/09 06:50 AM

This post captures LINKS to many of the personal lists various members have posted here. Some lists have coordinates and with some lists you will need to look up locations and separations in a catalogue. But at least you should find a link here to all the old posts, regardless of what old thread they are buried in. A few posts give long lists with coordinates and separations. Some have just two or three doubles, but might list the colors or describe where to find them. have fun.
