Quote:Hi all,While cleaning out a bookcase last night (which seems to have resulting in just moving items around and not throwing anything out!), I ran across some old issues of Deep Sky magazine that Kalmbach used to publish.I liked the reader-generated articles and the focus on observing. For some reason, this reminded me of Amateur Astronomy magazine and I went off to see if it was still being published, which of course it is.I vaguely remember that when it came out it was to be a quarterly publication dedicated to observing, amateur astronomers, and their techniques.For those who currently subscribe to it, how would you characterize it? Has it been under the same editorship all this time? If you remember the old Deep Sky, how does it compare? One thing I liked about Deep Sky was the use of sketches rather than photographs to illustrate objects.
