Note taking.


Recommended Posts

I'm was wondering how folks record or take notes during observing, or afterwards, and thought I'd mention an iPad app I frequently use.


It's called Notability and is great for sketching, handwriting and typing. I syncs with Dropbox and other stuff, and i've started to use it for a bit of sketching etc during observing. I have sent the authors some feedback regarding a dark adapted eye friendly theme which is a drawback currently.


Well worth a look I'd say.

I still use a pencil and notebook, been using one for 50ish years

They dont use batteries, wont blast your night vision away and you can sketch on it. Simpler, more vesatile for note taking and cheaper

That's lasted well phil, it must have many pages. ;-)

Notebook/astro diary, keep rough notes of sightings etc always good for reference in the future and the back has bought and sold  items and dates (lots of those!)

I've never sold anything yet. I once traded some spare book copies for an SPC880.
