Eight years after introduction of the Astronomy programs of the Rizal Technological University (MS in Astronomy, Graduate Diploma in Astronomy, and BS in Astronomy Technology), I have felt a real need for an observing catalogue which students can use, especially if they are observing in the school campus. An observing catalogue that would contain the most interesting objects in the night sky and which would be within the capability of binoculars or small telescopes now available in dealers’ shops in malls has been imperative in the last few years. These binoculars and telescopes are now within the reach of the budgets of students, as they are even cheaper than cell phones.
