I got to say I have to stand up and say Sky & Telescope is the way to go I read it cover to cover each month. Great articles and great sky charts for the month. Not to mention Tony Flanders is the man !

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.




+1 I dropped my subscripton to S&T for this very reason

Astronomy mag does the same thing to me only its every 4 weeks starting about 6 months before its due. But, for me that is not reason enough to cancel it. I like both S&T and Astronomy.

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.



100% agree.

Recommend buy an issue of all of them, that's what I did.. Something to be learned and enjoyed from all!

Dave/Betelgeuse: they don't do that on the digital edition. In fact they were even telling me there was a new issue! I had to go sign up and register to get that email.

I've been a regular subscriber to Astronomy, Sky & Telescope, Amateur Astronomy, and Astronomy Technology Today and I like them all. My S&T subscription recently ran out but it's only a matter of time before I renew. My favorite is Amateur Astronomy but they have been focusing a little more on the imaging side of the hobby which I don't care for but it's still my favorite. Astronomy Technology Today is all about the equipment side of the hobby. It's my second favorite. All four of the above have something to offer and that's why I've always subscribed to all of them.

I stopped subscribing to Astronomy Technology Today because of the new, overwhelming emphasis on imaging. I've only had a couple of issues of Amateur Astronomy, but it seems much more for the visual observer.

Not much mentioning of the Sky at Night mag !! I know it's a bit expensive but it does have very good articles, a nice star chart every month and comes with a DVD/CD. I am actually watching and listening to the Moore Marathon right now. Some very helpful info for beginners.

I read both Astronomy and Sky & Telescope and like them equally, but I don't subscribe to either one, partly because it saves me money, partly because of limited space in my little apartment. So about once a month, I go to a library that gets both magazines and read them there.
