Help Wanted

We'd like to add a Cluster/Nebula of the Month feature to our website to complete the set and offer a bit more observing inspiration. So we're looking for someone, or perhaps several others, to write this monthly piece.

Help is available, and I do all the layout to get it onto the website. You can see the kind of thing we're after in Owen and Bob's articles below. If you're interested please click this link to email me.

Why not join us?

You can now join the Webb Deep-Sky Society online using PayPal. Options include Paper and PDF versions of the Deep-Sky Observer journal, or PDF alone for a reduced price.

Perhaps you'd like to join our groups.io mailing group? Access is limited to members, but you're all welcome.

A well-known galaxy this month though not easy to observe visually nor with a camera. Lots of detail in this spiral star-forming galaxy which David captures beautifully.

Galaxy of the Month: NGC 7778 in Pisces

A group of galaxies this October with something for a wide range of telescopes. Owen even has a mission impossible for the really ambitious. Good luck.

Object of the Season: M 108 in Ursa Major

Wolfgang Steinicke would appreciate your observations of M 108 for his Object of the Season column in the Deep-Sky Observer.

Double Stars of the Month: STTA 1 and H VI 119

Bob has a tricky close double in Cepheus and an interesting triple in the southern skies of Piscis Austrinus. The close pairs are physical systems once again.
