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 ...

Problems with coverdisk

Does anyone share my problems with the coverdisk? When I view certain Bonus Features (mostly films) the wrong one is shown. No amount of restarting or reloading will solve this. I am therefore stuck only to view certain videos.

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, ...

Finder scope

I've got a Meade ETX-70AT and I would really like a finder scope to go with it, (for those nights when the Autostar and I don't see eye to eye!)

Thanks in advance.

Age of the universe...

I understood the age of the universe to be 13.7 billion years old. I have heard however that the hubble constant is being reviewed following the discovery of galaxies and stars older than this.

Proposed Observing Club

Hi all out there. I am at present a lone observer in Fife, Scotland. I would like to hear from like minded folks, with a view to forming a loose club for mainly observing, (at least to start with). The problem I have at home is severe light pollution.

If any one out there has some interest let me know.
