There used to be a way to get into the Cloudy Nights archives but I can no longer locate it. It would be such a huge loss for us classic telescope collectors if this was no longer available. Can someone please provide a link for this?

 

Thanks!

Gary

Gary, you can search for anything by clicking on the "Custom" link just below the forum description.  I don't believe there is a way to list just archived threads with a simple click.  But if you click on Start Date, you get them all in backwards chronological order, including the archived ones.

 

 

You can also click on the little gear icon next to the search box in the upper right corner for a more detailed search that should bring up archived results too.

Sorry Chuck but I don't see the "Custom" link just below the forum description that you mentioned. I see the Search box in the upper right hand corner of the main screen. Is this what you are referring to?

 

Maybe they now include all archived (older than a certain date) posts when you do a search? I thought there was a cut off date beyond which there was a special archive that you had to go to, to view the older posts.

 

I've seen some references to this archive but at this time cannot locate them.

 

 

Thanks,

Gary

Hi Gary:

 

Here it is.  Click on the pic for an enlarged view.

The little gear to the right of the search box gives you options to refine your search.  But the Custom button can do it too.

 

Archived threads should show up in any search as long as the search term is contained in the thread.
