BAA Memoirs

Are scans of BAA Observing Memoirs available somewhere on the BAA Website?

Issues up to vol. 36 (1947) can be found on the SAO ADS Website, but nothing more recent.

Yes you can purchase a DVD of the Memoirs volumes 1-42 the first 100 years of the Association for £45 for non members and £25 for members. Volumes 44 and 45 do not appear to be available at this time.

You can get the Haley's Comet Memoir on the publication page if you go to the journal archive it's between journal volume 101 issue 5 and 6

I was hoping for something on-line so I reference it for others to see, but I have now found an alternative source of the information required, which is available on-line.

Would you have a link to the Haley's Comet Memoir as I am unable to locate it on the Publication page?

Thank you

BAA Memoirs

The CD edition was prepared by Sheridan Williams and myself, and it covers the first 100 years of the Memoirs, which is one reason why the last few volumes were not included. Another reason is that we still have a large number of printed copies of the last few volumes for sale, so if anyone wishes to have them they can buy the paper copies. If there is another CD edition in a future year we might include the later volumes. As has been mentioned above, the Halley Memoir is available (as an exception) online, but the others are not. I am glad that the CD has sold well. For those interested in the old publications, we do have copies of many Memoirs for sale beyond those listed on the BAA website and do please ask me for details using my contact details in the Journal, if you wish.
