I didn't used to create lists.

New resolutions...

I just bought and am currently reading Stephen J O'Meara's book "Hidden Treasures" ( I like it because its specifically geared to 4" refractor scopes. I lost my right leg last year, and have just donated my 8" DOB to Bloomfield NJ College's Physics Dept and bought a 4" refractor since it's more transportable ), and Sue French's Deep Sky Wonders to provide alternative suggestions to standard lists - Messier, Caldwell, and Herschel.

I plan to concentrate on the objects within specific Constellations - a list of the interesting things in each constellation to see.

That ought to occupy my viewing time for the forseeable future.

So many choices.......
