Wish List For Technical Articles

Let's begin a list of stuff we'd like to see in S@N mags in the future.

I'll kick off with a few of my ideas:

Guide to Astroimaging - techniques and equipment - could be a muti-part series

Comparison of different types of scope, along with images taken using them, showing each type/size's potential.

Guide to buying equipment in general - so many types/prices - especially for eyepieces - what is a typical "split" for ...

What is your favourite/least favourite astronomy magazine?

There will probably be an urge here to say the Sky@Night. However, honest feedback will be very useful for the admins here so they can gauge reaction & make any adjustments necessary.

My overall favourite (just pipping S@N) is a little known quarterly publication from the US called Amateur Astronomy. This magazine is written entirely by its readership & editors & is very much an 'amateur' based publication. Though primitive in format, it is thoroughly ...

Star of Bethlehem

There could only be one astronomical question at this time of year, namely "What was the Star of Bethlehem?"
The link below takes you to a past "Question and Answer" session with PM. IN this he expresses his facour for the meteor theory, which explains the movement and the fact that we have only the biblical reference to it.
I have devised an extension of this theory, which changes the meteor into a small asteroid ...

Happy Christmas to all our readers

I'd like to wish all our readers a Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year.

Thanks to you, it's been a hugely successful year for us. When we launched the magazine we had no idea it would go down as well as it has, or that we'd have so many favourable messages from amateur astronomers around the world. It may be our "day job" but great feedback truly makes the whole effort worthwhile for ...

Orbiter 2005

The new magazine arrived yesterday, with Orbiter on the CD. I wondered how long it would be before Orbiter was included. If you haven't tried it already, I can tell you that Orbiter is a superb space flight simulator. Written by Dr Martin Schweiger, it has a pretty steep learning curve on account of its depth, but don't let that put you off. As you learn Orbiter you learn lots of stuff about orbits, ...

Opinions on Sky at Night magazine

Now that it has been running for 6 months or so, I wondered what opinions were on this new publication.........

Considering that the Sky at Night has been running since, I believe, April 1957, this magazine has been a long time a-coming.

But I believe its been well worth the wait.

Although priced at £4.25, the publication still offers very good value for money. And, of course, you get a CD ROM included in the ...
