Tips for using Observing Projects

Observing projects help to organize the observations that you place in your log. You do not have to use projects to use the observing log in Deep-Sky Planner. The Observing Project Manager provides the capabilities used to work with projects.

You might think of a project as a list of links to observations. The important point is that a project does not contain the observation itself, it contains a reference to it. This design makes it possible to associate an observation with more than one project or none at all. It also allows you to delete a project or rename it without affecting the observations associated with it.

Observing projects are a powerful way to organize your observations. Be sure to read about the Observing Project Manager in Deep-Sky Planner Help to learn how to create, delete rename projects, drag drop observations, and more.
