Links to other deep sky sites
to be rolled down
Digitized POSS Skyview NASA 
digitized sky survey from the Palomar Observatory Sky Survey (mag.lim.=19); leading site for those who want to compare their own observations with the best reference around. 


Digitized POSS DSS Space Telescope Science Institute
same topic as above. 


Bonn's Planetary Nebulae catalogue (Innsbruck DataBase)
complete database with all known planetaries and numerous professionnal images (NTT 3.50m ans KPNO 2.10m) in oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, helium ans others (as long as you can read FITS images): a must for the planetaries' amateur searching for data.


NGC / IC Project
project aimed at a correct identification of each NGC and IC objects; original catalogues, observings lists and lists of corrections are available.


Webb Society
well known amateur society UK based, grouping hundreds of deep sky observers from all over the world; a quaterly journal is published and the site presents numerous individuals' pages.


NDSOS (National Deep-Sky Observers Society)
american based society popularising the deep sky, producing 2 quaterly journals.


international organization fighting the light pollution; contacts and solutions are proposed.


Finnish Deep-Sky Section
deep sky section of the national organization "Ursa Major"; very active.


deep sky publication in german ! Interesting and of excellent design (the publication).


Mark Birkmann's site
Dedicated to large telescope drawings. Superb drawings made with a 40-inch dobsonian ! This includes some of my drawings made with 17.5-inch (and the number will grow with time).
