There are also some great modern lists put together by experienced amateurs in order to lead novices to some great sights.

One thought on “Observing Planning”

  1. My husband and I will be on the big island during the total lunar eclipse.
    We would love to travel with some expert photographers to see it. We were thinking to head up Mauna Loa observatory rd. We dabble in photography as well. This will be our last chance to visit Hawaii.
