Ok Folks -

You've done the Messier (they, in fact, are now your finder objects), you've done the Caldwell (child's play), you've done the Herschel 400 and H2(then just for kicks you knocked off the rest of the H objects with your big binos), and you've done *all* the AL lists. (BTW - If you have done the ARP AL list, :bow: - "we're not worthy... we're not worthy...") If NGC/IC/RNGC, MCG, UGC and even the PGC have become commonplace, and you've started on ones that are only listed in the CNG (neat trick that - BTW)...

Can you knock even one object off the AINTNO 100 list?

P.S. I thought I had item number 100 nailed, but they don't award duplicate certificates. :foreheadslap:

What!? :shocked: Seeing one Quark is not listed? How about a magnetic mono-pole? My virginity? (please return if found by the way). :jump:

Hi Tom:

For those members who live in urban areas and don't have frequent access to dark skies, the following list of 100 objects might be more fun. These are objects that can be observed under urban skies. They are one of many lists available at the Saguaro Astronomy Club site.

Urban List (100 objects)

Clear skies,
Jim

Jim,

The AINTNO objects are not really all that affected by light pollution. :grin: In fact, I do most of my AINTNO observing in the daytime. ;)

Of course, even folks who DO have dark skies will find the AL lists more fun.

I didn't see the Golden Arches or Circle K listed. Is that an over site or just on another list. There are so many I have lost track.

Jim,

Let me be serious for a second here (this might be difficult)... You are absolutly correct. I've found it helps if people have something to shoot for, and to that end - check this out as well:

http://www.astroleag...bs/obsclub.html

Each of the "clubs" has it's own target list. Once completed, you are eligible for a certificate. Well worth checking out. There are clubs for all age and skill levels and locations. From "Sky Puppy" (10 and under) to "Master Observer".

Take a look, you may just find a project you are interested in.

Tom T.
