Links

Here are some of my favourite links.

www.slooh.com Here you can watch live images from a telescopes in the Canary Islands and Chile and sign up to run your own 'missions'.
http://www.astronomycostadelsol.com/ Site for Astronomers living on the Costa del Sol.
Astronomy.FM Astronomy.FM is a forum for anyone interested in astronomy or imaging to exchange messages, chat and ask questions.
Astronomy Mega Links A link to a huge list of other amateur astronomer websites.
astronomy.ac.uk A range of Astronomy/Cosmology courses available from a group of UK Universities at very reasonable cost. Can be used to acquire 'points' towards a formal qualification or studied just for 'fun'.
Aladin A an interactive atlas giving access to digitised images of any part of the sky. Used when Starry Night does not go to a high enough magnitude.
Bob Jenkins' Web Site Interesting website from which I obtained the original Orbit Simulation program (now much modified).
IAU Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams Source of latest small body observations.
IAU: Minor Planet Center Lots of information about comets and asteroids. In particular I get comet/asteroid orbital elements to load into Starry Night from the MPC.
NASA Near-Earth Object Program Latest news about Near Earth Objects.
NASA/JPL Horizons The JPL HORIZONS On-Line Solar System Data and Ephemeris Computation Service
NASA/JPL Horizons Telnet The telnet service can provide much more detail than the web service. I use it to obtain position and velocity data for the orbit simulator.
Planetary Data System Home Lots of information about planets etc.
Qcuiag QuickCam site Home of the QuickCam and Unconventional Imaging Astronomy Group. Information and links to users of webcams and other non-astronomy cameras.
WMAP Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) site. Mapping the background radiation
