SKY AND TELESCOPE’S “POCKET SKY-ATLAS” IS A WONDERFUL RESOURCE FOR ALL AMATEUR ASTRONOMERS. THESE CHALLENGES ARE DESIGNED FOR SPICING UP YOUR OBSERVING.
Sky and Telescope Magazine’s “Pocket Sky-Atlas” has found a place in the tool kit of many amateur astronomers. The convenient size makes it easy to use at the telescope without requiring a separate chart table.
These challenge objects are indexed to the star chart pages containing those objects. The idea is to have fun and perhaps expand your observing past the “usual suspects” that can be found because of past experiences. Seeing conditions may not allow finding these objects every night, but they should be visible at some point during the month.
