The list of GPS coordinates of AZ observing sites is on my web site. See http://www.astrophotographer.com/AZ_observing_sites_GPS_coordinates.pdf This list has been compiled from data that has been sent to me over time by a number of people. I have not verified any of the data or the locations and would appreciate any corrections or additions. -------- One note: As I mentioned a few months ago, it's important when submitting GPS coordinates to identify the datum reference used. The most common is WGS84, and I suggest if you have a GPS unit that you set it to use the WGS84 datum. (Consult the user manual to learn more about datum references and how to select them in your GPS.) If the term "datum reference" is alien to you, see http://www.esri.com/news/arcuser/0401/datum.html http://www.connect.net/jbanta/FAQ.html Wil Milan http://www.astrophotographer.com/ "The heavens declare the glory of God And the firmament proclaims His handiwork." -- Psalm 19:1 At 08:32 AM 12/21/2001, Rick Tejer wrote: >Andrew, > >You've done a good job with this.
