My Observing Lists



 

Below, in the table on the left hand side, is a summary of the various Astronomical League Observing Club programs I have completed and the status towards completion of those I am still working on. If you place the mouse over the Observing Club Name and click the mouse, you will be taken to the Astronomical League's Observing Club summary page, explaining the various aspects of that particluar obsercing club program. If you place the mouse over the Certificate link and click the mouse, you will be taken to a picture of my certificate for this program. To see a picture of the pins I have received for these programs, see My Awards Page .

Below, in the table on the right hand side, is a summary of other observing lists I have come upon and wish to complete. As you can see, I have been concentrating on the Astronomical League's programs first and will get to these other lists soon.
