The Webb Society, a world-wide organization head-quartered in England,
puts out a number of good deep-sky publications, such as their
"Quarterly Journal", "The Deep-Sky Observer" and "Observing Section
Reports". See their web site at
Likewise the (U.S.) National Deep Sky Observer's Society has for some 20

NDSOS serves primarily North American observers, but their provide

I recommend all these publications highly.
