Naming DSOs

Postby StarSharp Astronomy » Thu Jul 26, 2012 5:40 pm

Hi all, Dion you may want to consider making this a sticky

When imaging and posting DSOs it would be helpful if people will include the Messier or NGC designation as well as the "common" name. Not all planetarium software can search using the common name.

Just a thought
