Re: (IAAC) IAAC Messier Challenge!



Lew,
I can guarantee you the Sag. "M"'s as soon as the sky clears up (possibly
this weekend). As for the galaxies, sorry but my 4.0 skies won't deliver
:(.  BUT, I will work on it.
thanks!
Penny

:This is a challenge to observers at ALL levels on the list!
:
:Looking over the latest update of our Web archive, I noticed there are
still
:many objects of the "Bright and Beautiful" class for which we have no
observing
:logs (or too few) posted! Among these are a number of nice Messier objects,
and
:many others... See the IAAC Objects List at:
:  http://www.tiac.net/users/lewkaren/netastrocatalog/objectlist.html
:for a complete listing of logs, by object name.

:Below is a list of "Missing Messiers" from our current IAAC archive: do you
:have an old log of one of these you'd like to share - or would you like to
:target one of them during your next observing session?
:
:Let us know what you find, and clear skies!
