Sooo, you were expecting our very own Erika to have a receding hair line also?

I no longer subscribe to either S & T or Astronomy, but choose the issues I prefer at the newsstand. Lately, I have favored S & T and felt that Astronomy has been less interesting. I go way back with Astronomy and still have a copy of its first issue. It's been a great publication over the years and I hope it regains its former quality.

Try a subscription to an excellent astronomy magazine published in the great white north - Terence Dickinson's Skynews. www.skynews.ca

Skynews is a good magazine that has run some excellent articles over the years, including one of the best I have ever seen on DSLRs. OTOH, it's kinda thin--as in real thin--and even more beginner oriented than Astronomy. But for some folks, that is a good thing. And Mr. Dickinson's magazine has some excellent writers and does not waste time with fluff/filler. I'll give it a "4" out of "5"...good beat and I can dance to it..!

"Try a subscription to an excellent astronomy magazine published in the great white north - Terence Dickinson's Skynews. www.skynews.ca"............I have seen it and it's pretty good. Not always easy to find in my area. The Barnes & Noble is about the only place to obtain it short of subscribing.

I doubt the editor(s) will enlarge the text to its original size. The pre-January issues were right on the line of being readable. Now, I don't want to fight through the smaller size. Astronomy's content is a whole another issue.
