    Sponsors are remarkably wise and kind people who have contributed money to help defray the costs of generating clear sky charts from CMC data. They have my deepest thanks:

    Why be a sponsor?

    Aside from knowing that you're helping north-american astronomers observe more often and the sheer joy of altruism, it gives me an opportunity to thank you in some small ways.

    It seems appropriate to me to give more computing resources to sponsored charts -- after all, sponsors are helping to pay precisely for that.

    It currently takes about two hours for me to update all chart pages after a CMC forecast update. I update the sponsored charts first. In the event of a system or hardware failure, I may only be able to update sponsored charts until I can make repair. Some cpu-intentensive features, like the climate/history pages, I only do for sponsored charts.

    What does sponsorship pay for?

    More importantly, sponsorship does not pay for the basic data from which I generate the charts. That data is offered to everyone for free by the Canadian Meteorological Centre though their public web page.

    Sponsorship does reduce some of the costs of internet access, web hosting, computers, software development and caffeine that I use to generate clear sky charts.

    How to be a sponsor.

    No amount is too small. I list sponsors for about a week per us dollar of sponsorship. (I ask more from commercial sponsors and do more for commercial sponsors. Email me for details.)

    There are two ways to sponsor:

    • Mail me a check. Please do not use the address printed in the February 2004 issue of Sky & Telescope page 69; it is wrong even with Stuart's correction. Instead, please Email me for the correct snail mail address. US dollar and personal checks are fine. Note that postage to me from the USA is us$1.15 and from Canada is can$0.85. A check gets the greatest amount of your sponsorship to me but is slow.

    • Or click on a button below to send money from your Paypal account or credit card.

      Non-Canadians please use: US Dollars

      Canadians Please use: Canadian Dollars

    In either case, let me know:
    1. what name you'd like credited on this page. I can also link your web page, if you like.
    2. The names of any clear sky chart pages you'd like your sponsorship to be acknowledged on.
    I always acknowledge receipt with an email.

    How much does it cost?

    There is no minimum sponsorship amount. I am greatful for any support. I also do not send past sponsors follow-up emails asking for more money.

    But to be fair to all sponsors, I acknowledge sponsors on this page, and on chart pages they've chosen to support, for a time proprotional to their sponsorship.
