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.

More nebulosity and a favourite region of the sky for me. It contains so much to observe in addition to the glorious emission nebula.

Galaxy of the Month: NGC 750 in Triangulum

Interacting galaxies feature this month and a group of 13 galaxies to explore. William Herschel struggled with most of them; can you do better?

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.
