Thanks Guys, And Deep Sites For Everyone!
For those who sent messages in the comments in the last post below, I answered all your messages, go check em guys!
Now onto some great sharing! I received 29 emails from backyard explorers asking what are the websites I found as part of my upcoming deep sky exploring this year and I decided to share them. Get your scopes ready! Lots of deep sky challenges coming your way. Would love to hear from people who are printing out these lists and taking them under the stars, beside their scopes and through the eyepiece.

This summer I want to have a blast out under the night sky in my backyard finding EVERYTHING I possible can so I decided to throw some fun words into google like challenging deep sky objects, deep sky exploring and I found all the sites above. I'll add more to my blog now and then. If you have any please do share! For more great links check out this post from Last August, click here to read it .
