A complete ascii table of CMB anisotropy observations and upper limits from 1992-present can be viewed or downloaded here. Since you've been such a great customer, I'll throw in a SuperMongo script that plots all of these detections against the output of CMBFAST at no extra charge!

(This script apparently uses Mongo commands so you'll need to call it by typing "input dT_lcdm.sm" at a supermongo prompt.)

The full text of the recent review article by Gawiser & Silk (astro-ph/0002044) is available, and you can also download the individual full-size color figures (including a plot of all these observations). The references mentioned in the table are found in this article, plus the recent publications of the BOOMERANG and MAXIMA teams.

In the table, -dlogl is log(leff/lmin) and +dlogl is log(lmax/leff) where leff, lmin, lmax are the mean and half-power points of the instrumental window functions. 1sigcal% means 1 sigma calibration uncertainty as a percentage of the reported dT; the upper and lower 1 sigma error bars in dT do not include this calibration uncertainty. 4pi/Omega is the inverse of the fraction of the full sky observed by the instrument; if a percentage appears in that column it is the percentage error on dT due to sample variance (and cosmic variance) reported by the authors, which is included in the +-dT error bars. x is the first-order correction for non-Gaussianity in the likelihood function derived by Bond, Jaffe, and Knox (only available for a few observations, in uK^2).

Other compilations of CMB anisotropy observations are available at Max Tegmark's site and Lloyd Knox's site.
