Asterism Observing Program

I really like the pin of Collinder 399 aka the Coathanger aka Brocchi's Cluster. Fun fact: The Asterism club is one of the program options for the Advanced Observer Award, the next level above Master Observer.

Yeah, there's a Master Observer progression now. Observer|Master Observer > Advanced Observer > Master Observer - Silver > Master Observer - Gold > Master Observer - Platinum.

At first I thought it was a kind of grade inflation to accommodate the relative ease of blasting through lists using GoTo scopes, but no. There's actually a lot of thought behind it.

25 done; 75 more to sketch.

I've sketched over half now. However, I'm going to slow down, maybe do one a month following Steve Goldberg's Asterism column, and concentrate on some of the others.
