Hopefully last update. I've enhanced all of my guides with a graphical cover page. And slightly enhanced the download page with mini graphics of each color. Let me know what you think. I was doing and thinking about it while putting in the finishing touches to my upcoming new book, Observing Variable Galaxies.

Actually one more update in the near future...the release of the above guide.
