Are you an amateur astronomer interested in deep-sky observing? Do you enjoy
looking at objects through the scope, but wish you had a convenient way of
sharing observing experience with other amateurs?
'IAAC' is the Internet Amateur Astronomers Catalog - a growing compendium of

mailing list called 'netastrocatalog', which is devoted EXCLUSIVELY to these

IAAC, contact me at the address below.
