OK, for those of you who are looking for available books from Wilmann-Bell, I am sharing this link with you. 

 

This is a Montreal based distributor (our local astronomy store). They still have a few books. I just ordered the Arp Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies.

They did not have Volume 7 of the Annals of the Deep Sky Series... If any of you know where I can find one, let me know!

Woodland Hills today just shipped me the first 4 volumes of the Annals of the Deep Sky.  They may still have some left.  I was going to wait until Christmas time and order all 7 (8?) volumes from W-B, but once they closed, I figured I should get what I could.

I just ordered 3 volumes of Annals.  I bought V1 several weeks ago and have only scanned it so far but I am impressed.  Was going to order others at my leisure but now, oh well, panic buy.

Looks like the owner  didn't know what he has in stock. I asked for "Telescope Optics" shown in stock, he didn't has it, but suddenly told me if I'm looking for "Star Clusters", and I immediately told to add to cart.

Thanks again!

 

BTW, don't tell my wife too...  wink.gif

I bought all the Annals volumes plus Star Clusters  and V. 3 of NSOG from Willmann-Bell about a month ago.  I purchased V. 1 and 4 of NSOG from them in the summer.  I’m very glad I didn’t wait.

Volume 8 has Cygnus. Most of Volume 8 is Cygnus.  :-)   It also has Delphinus and Dorado.

So I ordered The Night Sky Observers Guide Vol 1 and Vol 2 on Amazon the other day from different sellers. Today one of them sent the wrong volume so now I have 2 Volume 2’s. But wait, there’s more, I open up the book today to inspect it and one of the authors has signed it from Astrofest to the original buyer! Kind of neat!

Cygnus and Delphinus - I need to get one of these books.  That is my favorite part of the sky.
