I was wondering what all was in this constellation... thanks, Tom. One question: I would like to print out the dso list, but copying/pasting to wordperfect changes the format to a long column, not a nice chart. Ideas on how I can make this happen? Or is the PDF the solution?

Thanks Timm, Carol and Nick!

Nick, I think the PDF is what you'll be looking for - otherwise you can print it straight from your browser and print only the page(s) you're interested in.

Olivier put in some overtime and got the PDF to me this morning, so it's now active as well.

As usual, he did a VERY nice job with it. Thanks Olivier!

Are you using the pdf versions? I find those to be more 'printer friendly.'

Impressive articles, unputdownable to the end..
while gazing around the articles DSO's mistical reverie take me other sides of heavens..
By the way Turkish fans are growing impatient for the new articles so they hasten me for next SW's translations..
Here's the link for Turkish translations web page

You can set most printers to print in lower quality to save ink. Of course you could always print them at work on the color laser printer too, assuming you have access to one, and won't get in trouble that is. :yay: :waytogo:

I was printing out a Small Wonders one evening and my wife made a comment about ink usage. So I compared the cost of printing all the pages of Small Wonders I've downloaded thus far with the cost of the Night Sky Observing Guide. But it in perspective.

Well, it would have, except that I had NSOG sitting on my desk in plain sight, and then had to explain why I needed both... :tonofbricks:

Clear skies,
