Observing
 
   
     
   

These Observing Reports are a mixture of HTML pages and PDFs created for my earlier website.

Some of the observing sites have been abandoned because of problems such as ongoing access, or were not suitable.

Each Observing Report is activated by clicking the date.

Active Observing Sites, such as the Kumeu Observatory will have a hyperlink to them. Just click the name of the location, for a close look at each site.
