A Really Cool Messier Object Log


Yesterday I found a really cool Messier Object log while using StumbleUpon. It's called TUMOL, short for The Ultimate Messier Object Log. There is a separate page for each Messier Object, complete with fields for atmospheric conditions, reports, and a picture and finder chart of each object.

TUMOL is available either as an application for Mac or Windows, or as a printable PDF file. I chose to download the PDF and print it out so I can put it in a binder and use it at the telescope. I was previously using the Telrad charts to mark off when I've found certain objects, but this is going to be much more organized. I think because of how nice these logs are, I'm going to start over with my Messier count, just as a challenge!

On this same website are similar observation logs for Caldwell Objects, and one for "overlooked objects". So check it out, these logs could be useful for any astronomer observing the Messiers.

Clear skies!

Agreed - its a nice log. Check the release notes for the 3.2 PDF Version if you don't believe me =-)

I had already completed my M certificate by the time I found this resource, but plan on using it for a Messier Marathon session, if I ever get clear skies on that weekend.

I used his Caldwell log for completing my Caldwell list last year - worked great!!!
