Would that be Dark Sky advocate? Other than that one, they all require some sort of observing comments.

If we consider the Dark Sky Advocate an outreach award, the only one of the observing ones that does not require a submitted description of the object is the....

... Lunar Club. For this club, you only need to check off the items on a list and provide a day and time of observation. Even the Lunar II club requires a description of the object to be submitted, but the original Lunar club, does not.

I thought you meant lunar I but when looking at is I saw the requirements at the end of the page but they are optional.

Just slew your mount around normally.. You don't have it hit the GOTO button to use it.

I have completed 2 and I'm working on about 6 more. I've noticed that since I've started doing so my observing habits have changed for the better. I actually wrote an article on the subject that will be appearing in Sky & Telescope sometime in early to mid 2014.

Also, in terms of time limits, there are some programs that have to be completed within a certain set window of time. The Sunspotter and H-alpha programs have sections that have to be completed over the course of two solar rotations.
