YSO monthly digest

I am thinking of producing a monthly HTML email newsletter for interested observers, covering YSOs to observe, general news, titbits from the Star Formation Newsletter and so on. My intention to begin with is to send to folks I know are active observers, though every issue will contain a reminder that recipients can be instantly removed from the mailing list (personally, by me). Any thoughts? Good idea? Bad idea?

I will be very interested in this project.
Even though I sometimes miss time, the YSOs are exciting

HOYS-CAPS

Hi,

you should mention in your mailing the HOYS-CAPS project:

http://astro.kent.ac.uk/~df/hoyscaps/index.html

Just a few days ago they issued an AAVSO Alert for a star in Cyg.

They look for amateurs in helping observing certain fields and sending in their images. I am one of those. I would also be interesting in receiving your mailings although I am not specifically hunting down YSO's but am open to any interesting target to add to my observing list.

thanks

Thanks for the positive feedback! I was certainly going to mention Dirk's HOYS-CAPS as it may well tie in with a coming project anyway. I am planning for a December launch; although I was (and still sort of am) a web designer/developer I have never produced HTML emails before, so a bit of a learning curve there! Hopefully the emails will be of responsive design because I know several observers use mobile phones to receive emails, me included.

those interested please reply

Hi, The YSO newsletter (first tentative version) has had a good response from HQ - so could all those who expressed an interest send me their email addresses so I can create a mailing list.

email clients

Just wondering if subscribers could give me some idea what email clients they use (other than where it is obvious from the address, such as ...@gmail...) The reason is, some email clients like outlook (what a surprise) have trouble rendering HTML properly. That will allow me to design better bulletins. No rush!

Note: please send these replies to either mike@starman.co.uk OR mikethestarman@gmail.com in order to avoid filling up this forum!
