Hi Dave;

do you have a similar list for Southern Hemisphere observers? some of these are visible from Southern Latitudes but many are not

I'm afraid not. I live at approximately 40 degrees north and my lists, which appear in the newsletters and on the websites of two of the astronomy clubs that I belong to, reflect that fact.

Are you familiar with _Hartung's Astronomical Objects for Southern Telescopes_? It's rather expensive but it's the best guide to the southern skies that I've seen.

Here are some southern hemisphere DSO lists:

I own telescopes ranging from 80mm to 12.5 inches in aperture. In addition, I have access to club scopes as large as 17 inches (browse http://www.astrohbg.org/gallery2/Tour-of-N...ylor/3b_17_inch (http://www.astrohbg.org/gallery2/Tour-of-Naylor/3b_17_inch) for a photo). Several of my friends have telescopes of 20 inches or larger that I also use occasionally.
