Oh, and kudos to Tom for another great guide!

Yep - just checked - that's a problem. I'll get it fixed and post here when I have it done.
I wondered why the .doc files were so much smaller than the PDF's.

It is MUCH larger than the .doc file (no surprise).
Thanks for the comments, I'm gratified that you are finding these enjoyable and useful. I am sure getting a kick out of writing them.

I first located it this past summer using my 8" SCT and the I3 eyepiece. Here is a link to my observation report . Farther down in the thread is a locater chart I made that shows exactly how I starhopped to Pease 1 and confirmed it.

According to Doug Snyders site: http://www.blackskie...m/pease_obs.htm
Wolfgang Howurek *did* manage to catch it in an 8" scope - however, he did employ a filter.
In any case, good finder charts are a *must*

You never cease to amaze me with your talant. I use Kepple's Astro Card kit with the luminator board for these types of galaxy hunts. The batteries last about five years before you need to change them. I've seen just about every object in Pegasus and I use Burnham's Celestial Handbook as my primary reference, but I also like the books you referenced as well. I think observers are going to learn a great deal from this wonderful review of yours.

Folks, I think we better knock off the praise or he may stop giving these away for free!

I must say I find these articles extremely readable and they have a certain conversational tone about it, which is rather nice.

From all of us folks who like faint fuzzies but who are overwhelmed by all the fuzzies out there, thanks!

Just kidding, Tom, when you feel like publishing, we'll all be standing in line.
