Provided here is a month-to-month list of potential targets for imaging. These are PDF files.
Things to note on documents:
Grayed targets have already been imaged.
Times associated with Transit, and Imaging Window:
All times are approximate generally within 15minutes of the estimated event.
All calculations are based on Chandler as the location. If you live in the Phoenix Metro area this should be fine.
The date used for the calculations are on the night of the new moon for the month. These numbers are a pretty good approximation for the week before and after the new moon.
Imaging Window Times are determine with the following assumptions:
Imaging window cannot start until astronomical twilight and must stop at astronomical dawn.
Ideal alt of 45degrees above the Eastern Horizon to the Meridian (Since I live in the East valley, and west has light pollution).
Targets low on the Southern Horizon may have an imaging window that starts with them lower then the ideal 45 degrees. Generally I'll take the transit, and subtract 2hrs as the starting window.
