Quote:Reading some posts on Stellar Media, I got turned on to Astronomy Technology Today. I checked out their web site, and subscribed. I also purchased all the prior editions. Today, I read the first issue--April 2007, and the current issue--Sept./Oct. 2010.This is an excellent publication. It fills a niche that neither Sky and Telescope or Astronomy cover that well. There are loads of telescope, eyepiece, software, imaging, and other equipment reviews. When reading astronomy magazines, I enjoyed reading the ads as much as the articles. Astronomy Technology Today is chock full of equipment reviews--about 68 pages worth. Sky and Telescope and Astronomy cannot meet everyone's needs. Astronomy Technology Today might nicely fill a niche for you.GeneT

Quote:Anybody got their Nov/Dec issue yet?
Quote:I subscribed when it first came out and it was a great magazine for it's articles on the latest astro-gear. However, I recently let my subscription lapse as a large percentage of the articles turned to gear and techniques for astro-imagers. Too bad! It's still a great magazine for astrophotography, but that just doesn't interest me.

Quote:So, who besides me is having problems with ATT? Are they still in business? I subscribed for digital and paperback issues. Two months go by with nothing coming in the mail. I email them and they say is would have started with the next issue. Another three months go by, still nothing.... Anyone else see that as poor business, maybe out of business?
