slipped my brain

My sis emailed me to say that Al gave her more eyepieces for Mom's telescope. I replied the same day to this message.

But for some reason I would forget about these eyepieces until a year and a half later... Becoming an old fart with bad memory I guess.

Messier lists

I found a couple of handy lists with Messier catalog information. I downloaded a straight list and touched it up. This will be useful as a checklist, to work through. The other list I found was prepared by Don Savat and Jim Rice. Each object included a brief description. Nice. And at the end of the list, the objects were indexed by season. Very nice.
