Mostly advertising??? I will not dignify that claim with an argument.

Dark skies.

I agree. S&T has plenty of content, and the advertising is a good way to see what is new in the market. For me, it's kind of like looking at the old Sears Christmas Wishbook when I was a kid.

I think Sky & Tel magazine is great no matter what they publish. I often review back issues, 2, 5, 10 years ago and always stunned by the information that I had forgotten. All the articles on observing are still true today and a great resource.

A positive attitude with positive energy will keep your enthusiasm in this or any hobby quite high. If you find your enthusiasm low, it is certainly not the fault of any magazine.

I am reviewing a past article about blackholes and making a short list of objects to view in the night sky.

Thank you Sky & Tel!!!!





This is why I ended up investing in the DVD set.

I think I'm going to get that DVD set as well. I'd thought about it and then forgotten about it. Glad you brought it up, Tom. I used to have nearly all the issues through the 1970's and early '80s. I wish I still had them.

Don't get me wrong, the current issues are good, too! But the "Gleanings for ATMs" section was impossible to beat, and it's not been equalled since.

It's fascinating to go through the set and see how amateur astronomy has evolved over the course of the magazine's run.

December issue - ANOTHER excellent issue for observers and amateurs in general. Well done, editors.

I also donated a lot of my old magazines to the local library in the past. They always seemed happy to receive them.




There may also be a contribution bin for the jail at your local courthouse. I contribute books & mags to the one at mine.

Looks like my issue will be late again this month. Edit: Wrong, again. It came this afternoon.
