ABOUT THESE SOUTHERN PAGES
For almost thirty-five years I have been very
interested in astronomy, and after years of contemplating, I
decided to convert my writings of my general experiences and
observations onto the Web to share with the world. These pages
are a modest collection of the astronomical articles that I
have written as papers, collected articles, or have presented as
selected talks to several local astronomical societies. Others also
have been reproduced from my own notes as an adult educator at
various Evening Colleges.
Many who maybe familiar with my previous works will
find these are new or new version to the reader - several being
rewrites or are those that have just needed a few small general
updates with modern discoveries or knowledge. Some are brand new
articles that have appeared nowhere else. The main ones of these
are the “Classic Deep-Sky and Double Stars” articles,
that include the cremè de la cremè of the southern skies.
I have also added a few northern ones just to keep those readers
happy. Bien, c’est la ve!
This slow evolution has eventually created these
humble pages which are now in the third incarnation. I do hope you
enjoy this modest compilation!
If you have any comments (or problems) please
don’t hesitate to contact me.
