Sky Data Bases

The Sky SDB's

I use The Sky Level IV for Home and Camping use.  It has a great capability to add new interesting objects of current interest.

While Camping with my telescope, I'm always asked many questions, so I decided to create some unique outreach type Sky Data Bases (SDB's) using Access 2000.  These data bases are of objects that are usually visible or are of current interests or have interesting pictures. 

These and other SDB's and the associated text files are free to use with source credit.
