Mullaney's Roster of 300 Night Sky Wonders Now On-Line



















James Mullaney's list of 300 night sky wonders,
now on-line, comes from his book, Celestial Harvest:
300-Plus Showpieces of the Heavens for Telescope
Viewing and Contemplation.

A “Celestial Roster” of 300 of the finest wonders of the night sky, compiled by long-time astronomy educator James J. Mullaney, has now been posted on the Internet's World Wide Web. This list, which Mr. Mullaney describes as his “life's work,” is based on his 1998 book, Celestial Harvest: 300-Plus Showpieces of the Heavens for Telescope Viewing and Contemplation.

James Mullaney is an astronomy writer, lecturer, and consultant who has served as Curator of Exhibits and Astronomy at Pittsburgh's original Buhl Planetarium and Institute of Popular Science, Staff Astronomer at the University of Pittsburgh's Allegheny Observatory, and Director of the Dupont Planetarium located on the campus of the University of South Carolina, Aiken. He has written for Astronomy, Sky and Telescope, and Star and Sky magazines.

Friends of the Zeiss is proud to host, on the web site of the History of The Buhl Planetarium and Institute of Popular Science, Pittsburgh, James J. Mullaney's “Celestial Harvest Showpiece Roster” at this link:
