All, Here are the preliminary results from this weekends Messier marathon. Please do not publish this list as it is intended to ensure accuracy. Please look it over and let me know of any corrections needed, particularly spelling of names (I'm a horrendous speller!). I've included the SAC & AZ Observing lists. And the emails for those out of state observers that provided an address. Please forward to anyone on the list who you feel may not receive this listing. I plan on finalizing the results next week after debriefing AJ, so please get you corrections in before next Monday. Hopefully, We'll get the Awards ordered and presented by the may meetings. Congratulations to all who participated, you made it a success! 2009 All Arizona Messier Marathon Preliminary results #Observed Observer Club City Instrument Missed (100+)/Comments 110 Rick Tejera SAC Glendale, AZ 8" f/6 Dob Don Machholz None Listed Colfax, CA 6" Newt reflector 43rd Marathon!, By Memory George J Robinson A.L.
