Sharing Observing list? - chrisp9au - 2021-03-20

Hi Greg,

Are we able, and encouraged, to upload observing lists that we create?

If we are, how do we achieve this?

I have the following lists from handbooks to contribute, mostly for Southern Hemisphere observers really.

Deep Sky Companions - Southern Gems, Stephen O'Meara
Deep Sky Companions - The Secret Deep, Stephen O'Meara
Pearls of the Southern Skies - Dieter Willasch & Auke Slotegraaf
Objects in the Heavens - Peter Birren Naoyuki Kurita

Hi Chris,

Observing Lists are always welcome and appreciated. I have a plan to allow people to share lists via our web site, through SkyTools, eventually. In the meantime, feel free to post there here as attached files. Thanks!

Thanks Greg,

Just 3 files actually as the Objects in the Heavens is already available.

They work for me, I just hope they are useful for others.

Chris are these ST3 or ST4 lists as I understand trying to use ST4 lists in ST3 is a very bad thing.

Hi Owen, the lists were generated using SkyTools 4 Visual version 4.0j R1

Greg would need to comment on using them in Skytools 3.
