The Webb Deep-Sky Society has a wide range of
publications including our Journal,
The Deep-Sky Observer (DSO),
observing guides and charts.
Profusely illustrated, The Deep-Sky Observer is the consolidated publication of what was formerly the Quarterly Journal and the Deep-Sky Observer.
Printed on art paper, its magazine format encourages all amateurs to make a contribution to the Society's work. The Deep-Sky Observer is now published quarterly.
The Webb Society has a long tradition of producing high quality
guides and handbooks aimed at the practical deep-sky observer.
In conjunction with Alvin Huey of faintfuzzies.com the
Webb Deep-Sky Society brings you a series of excellent
Observing guides to download for free including Massimo Zecchin's
fantastic atlas of planetary nebulae observed with small apertures
and from suburban locations, entitled:
"The Brightest Planetary Nebulae Observing Atlas", and Owen Brazell's
Deep Sky Forum Object of the Week SkyTools files.
Visual Observations of Planetary Nebulae - Kent Wallace
It seems that Kent Wallace has self-published a new book on planetary nebulae via ebay. This is a monumental piece of work I suspect, but maybe one for the purists.
Historical documents and sketches on CD-ROM
- Lord Rosse's Observations of the Nebulae.
- Webb's Celestial Objects for Common Telescopes 1st Edition and W Lassell's Drawings of the Nebulae.
- John Hershel's Astronomical Observations from the Cape and other papers.
Price is £5 (before P&P).
