Messier Sky Tours- SEDs as Podcast

Like looking at deep sky objects in your scope, but can’t remember a thing about them? Tired of holding a flashlight in your teeth and fumbling with astronomical books?

I want my scope time to be better-

So I took some of the information that SEDS (Students for the Exploration and Development of Space) publishes, ran it through spokentext.net and put the mp3 files up here as podcasts. Load em’ up and listen at your scope.

(Warning: These are, for the most part, unabridged. There are some tedious bits. If I took the time to edit, this would never get done! It does keep me at the eye piece longer!)

    Very nice…do you know of any other audio or podcast sources for all 110 objects?

    Thanks!! Hope they worked out for you.

    I haven’t heard of any other Messier audio collections. There are a couple of astronomy podcast out there, but not arraigned by object as far as I know. The SkyScout hand held “scope” is supposed to have audio, but not sure how they do objects.

    If you decide to do some yourself, I’ll link to you!
