Re: (IAAC) Uranometria



Lew,
I want the DSFG.  Here I am at a star party and some wise ass asks if I can
show him NGC 4362.  I don't know what it is, much less where it is - so I
look it up in the DSFG.  Permutations on this present themselves often
enough for me to find the DSFG very handy quite apart from its obvious use
as a reference book.
Clear skies,  Sue
