I've moved most of the text from the front page at to the introduction to the book. There is now a much simplified front page with a random beautiful nebula image.

Since my last blog entry, I've added a RCW catalog gallery to complement the Sharpless catalog gallery. As the DSS-2 blue plates are missing for much of the southern hemisphere, I've just used the red and infrared (green) plates to construct many of the RCW images. This results in a lot of pink/purple nebulae, but is better than no images at all.

I've also added a simpler and more accurate "fantasy" map. The regions shown on this map will become the basis for much of the Our Galactic Region book.
