The SBO Catalog of Objects

Here is the catalog of 225 celestial objects utilized by the SBO 16-inch and 18-inch telescopes. These documents are written in Adobe Acrobat Portable Document File (PDF) format, so that you can either read themon-line, or download them and print them out for yourself. Number of pages and file sizes are included witheach listing.

PDF is a format that is machine-readable across platforms - be it on a PC, a Mac, a UNIX machine, etc. It insures that the recipient gets an exact copy of the intended file, page for page, line for line - without having to worry about font substitutions, platform incompatablilities, or whatever.

Most computers sold within the last few years come pre-loaded with Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is designed to read PDF files. If this is the case for your machine, all you have to do is simply click on any of the links below, and the Acrobat Reader should automatically load and show you the document. (Older browser versions may just write a copy of the document to your desktop (like an e-mail attachment), rather than show it to you "live" within the browser window. If this happens, you can always open the document later, "off-line", rather than in real-time from within the browser.)

If you don't already have Acrobat Reader installed on your computer, or if you wish to acquire the most recent version, you can download it for free from Adobe Customer Support. Don't worry, Adobe won't go broke (they create a demand for Acrobat by giving the Reader away for free, but charge for the corresponging "Writer" ... a clever, and very reasonable, marketing ploy ...).
