Hey Folks,

I'm considering this book as well. Here's a great on-line site of the book I came across while resarching - please check it out - I spent way too much time perusing it last nite...

http://www.library.gatech.edu/search/digital_collections/barnard/index.html

Cheers




"spend way too much time"

I downloaded the complete book from this in the past with a dial up connection,
took 40 hours
I am thankful for the new book

Well, I can't argue with any of that.

But Edj, I'm curious: I've noticed that your posts often have the appearance of verse (as above). Is that intentional, or are you writing from a small portable device, or what? Just wondering.




I saw a little E.E. Cummings myself there.

Recieve my used copy today (actually new with a crease/additional fold in last page fold out map). This is one major piece or work. Glad I ordered it.

Are these all the B objects, or are there others that he found afterwards or just didn't make it in the two volujmes (now one book).




This Atlas does not contain all of Barnard's Dark Nebulae, only those that appear in the 50 plates. There are 31 objects not included, although I did provide the current co-ordinates for all the objects- now totaling 352. As explained in the Addendum, there are many objects that E. E. Barnard outlined, but never catalogued. Perhaps he was going to 'fill-in' his listing with these objects, those that would be numbered 176 through 200.

Hope you enjoy the republished version.

Cheers,

Jerry

Thanks for your feedback. I did notice the gap before 200 and figured he arbitrarily started at 200 for his second volume. t makes more sense now.

Jerry, et al;

I got the money together and finally ordered my copy yesterday. I am looking forward to using it to create my images of the Barnard catalog. All it takes is time and money;-)

Clear skies;
Steve Coe
