Re: (IAAC) Observing Handbook and Catalog of Deep Sky Objects
Last week, I posted that a bookshop is Singapore is selling this at about US$7. Over the weekend, I went there
to try to get one for myself on for a few fellow overseas amateurs who had email me to get for them.
To my surprise, it was sold out. While I can understand if this is, say, in USA, I find it hard to believe
that it is such a demand here in Singapore. I am sorry my Singapore friends, are they so many more deep sky
observers here and do not have the book prior to this? I think someone must have read this and got them for
their friend overseas, just like what I was trying to do. Or maybe it was a mistake by the bookshop. But the
staff did show me their computerised inventory. It wasn't there. I apologise for those whom I promised to try
to get for them. My sincere apology.
Just in case someone may think that I was trying to pull a bluff and waste everybody's bandwidth, the contact
