,Thanks and always, clear skies.
Quote:For a few months I tried both, but I found that astronomy is a more scientific magazine and S&T leans more on the observing side. But I liked astronomy a little more so I have had astronomy for about a year now.
Quote: Exactly what I was about to say except I lean more towards S&T for the observing info. I always pick up a copy of the latest S&T(really need to renew that subscription) and flip through Astronomy on the shelf and only pick it up if there is a promising looking article or two.

Quote:I subscribe to both Astronomy & Sky and Telescope. Sky & Telescope has the REALLY annoyning habit of mailing out a re-subscribe notice about every 6 weeks. Why? Another case of the marketing dweebs running the show? REALLY annoying! If there comes a time when I decide to eliminate one I know which it'll be.
