Keeping good records of observations is essential if you are participating in any of the observation programs, or if you want to have a record of your observations so that you can check for variances during later observation sessions.

Please Allow 2-6 Weeks for Delivery.

Astronomical Observer's Kit

The Astronomical Observer's Kit is a good starter kit for beginning observers.  The kit contains the following:

  • A notebook to hold charts and observation materials (and provide a hard surface on which to write), with a cover insert for identification.
  • A free shareware copy of SKY MAP...a computer "planetarium" program that allows you to print sky maps.
  • A 1.5" Baader Solar Filter Viewer which may be converted to a telescope or binocular filter.
  • A Draco Productions Moon Map, for lunar observation exercises
  • Four seasonal sky charts
  • A Resource/Tip Sheet for observers, listing information sources and observing programs 
  • A Universal Time Conversion Chart 
  • An Observing Terminology Definitions label which may be applied to your notebook for handy reference.
  • Four labeled storage envelopes for completed observation/astrophoto logs.
  • 3 plastic sheet protectors containing the  Spring - Summer - Autumn - Winter sky charts,  Moon Map, and Tip/Resource Sheets
  • 5 Divider Tabs with labels for the observing sheets and reference materials
  • 25 sheets each of the following log sheets:
         General  Observation Log
         Sun/Moon and Planets
         Observation Log
         Saturn Observation Log 
            ( with appropriate ring tilt )
         Astrophotography Log

The log sheets included in the kit may be used for Astronomical League certificate or with the ALPO (Association of Lunar and Planetary Observers) observation programs.  

   

The log sheets included in the kit may be used for Astronomical League certificate or with the ALPO (Association of Lunar and Planetary Observers) observation programs.  

This kit is ideal for Community College Astronomical Observation classes offered to the general public, such as "Astronomy for Everyone" offered by Pensacola Junior College in Pensacola, Florida.

To obtain an AL observing certificate, only the copies of your original logs should be sent for verification.

The Astronomical Observer's Log Kits help you keep your observations organized and accessible with storage envelopes that you label:
   General Observation Log
   Sun/Moon/Planet Observation Log
   Saturn Observation Log
   Astrophotography Log
and date with months and years for easier search capabilities.

Refill packs of 25 sheets, plus a large, labeled storage envelope are available for each category.

Observing Kits are not only useful for the amateur astronomer, but are also beneficial for students working on school research projects, Science Fairs, home school projects, or science contests.  See the Complete Science Fair Astronomy Kit below.
