Description:

This website is dedicated to the amateur astronomer interested in Deep Sky Object Observation. It begins by explaining how these objects are divided into different types, mainly nebulae, and how they are classified, using the Messier Index or New General Catalogues (NGC), according to shape and structure. Interactive maps of Messier and NGC objects are presented, in which the user can find the location of a desired object. The last part of the website instructs the user on how to locate and observe Deep Sky Objects using amateur astronomy instruments; along with a list of references, for the more curious, and instrument makers.
