Observing Planetary and Supernova Remnants

Cover of Observing Planetary and Supernova Remnants

Planetary nebulae, supernovae remnants and protoplanetaries that are observable above about -50° declination. About 350+ objects are included. Many stellar planetaries are left out. (322 pages)

Price is £15 Members / £20 Non-Members (before P&P).

Observing the Herschel Part lll Objects

Cover of Observing the Herschel Part lll Objects

The third group of Herschel objects generated by Tom Hoffelder consisting of 300 galaxies. This is an excellent step for those who completed the Part I and II list. A 10 or 12" scope is needed to see all objects on this list, but an 8" can see most of them. (300+ pages)

Price is £15 Members / £20 Non-Members (before P&P).

Observing Selected Small Galaxy Groups

Cover of Observing Selected Small Galaxy Groups

Small Galaxy Groups inspired by the Astronomical League Galaxy Clusters Observing Club with some additional selections. 60+ groups. 8” or larger scope. (151 pages)

Price is £10 Members / £12 Non-Members (before P&P).

Observing the Abell Galaxy Clusters

Cover of Observing the Abell Galaxy Clusters

In 1958, Dr. George Abell compiled a list using POSS1 plates consisting of 2712 galaxy clusters (limited to -27° and above). Later in 1989, Dr. Abell and Harold Corwin added an additional 1361 clusters. I've selected 80+ Abell Galaxy Clusters for this observing guide for intermediate and advanced observers with large telescope - 16” or larger scope is recommended. (432 pages)

Price is £20 Members / £25 Non-Members (before P&P).

Globular Clusters

Cover of Globular Clusters

All globular clusters above -50° declination. This list includes all Messier, NGC and Palomars and Terzans. There are a few “impossible” globulars, such as the two 2MASS globulars, FSR 1735, in this list as well. 90+ globulars. Most are observable with an 8” scope. (128 pages)

Price is £10 Members / £12 Non-Members (before P&P).
