I have added a link to this wonderful set of deep-sky observing lists
from avid observer Mr. Ron Muir, on the IAAC "links" page at:


Please feel free to link to visualdeepsky.org if you care to, Ron!

(And if we're very nice to Ron, we may even convince him to join the
IAAC, and/or contribute a few of his observing logs to our archive. ;>)

Clear skies!
