5.0 out of 5 stars How Do I Know Which Magazine To Buy? January 21, 2010
Subscription Term Name:1 year
So, you are interested in astronomy and ready to pick up a subsciption to an astronomy magazine, but are not sure which magazine to purchase? First let me say, "Good for you!" I never go a month without a magazine. It is difficult to keep up to date with the night sky without a monthly guide.

But you are probably trying to decide whether to read "Astronomy" magazine or "Sky & Telescope". These are the two big North American competitors. The good news is, you won't go wrong. Both are excellent magazines and both are of similar quality, size, and usefullness. I regularly read both of them. The difference is a matter of subtle leaning. Astronomy magazine leans a little more toward the amateur. It includes monthly selections that will help a person who is learning the sky. It is a favorite of those who appreciate the beauty of the night sky. Sky & Telescope is a little more technical. It is written for someone who tackles the subject with the passion of a scholar. As I wrote, the difference is subtle. Either way, you won't go wrong.

Let me go out on a limb here. If you are reading this review and trying to decide, you probably will enjoy Astronomy magazine more.

UNLESS . . .

That is, unless you do not own a telescope and do own a pair of binoculars. Sky & Telescope includes a small "Binocular Highlight". It isn't large, less than a page, but it is enough to challenge you.

Which way do I personally lean? Last year I leaned toward Sky & Telescope and picked up occasional Astronomy magazines at the bookstore. This year I subscribe to Astronomy and pick up occasional Sky & Telescopes at the books store. Next year . . .who knows? I keep trying out different magazines and comparing them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Magazine! May 23, 2008
Subscription Term Name:1 year
By far, this is my all-time favorite astronomy magazine, and its companion website is a fantastic, useful, up-to-date resource. This magazine has fantastic photos and illustrations. Its plethora of articles are well-written and diverse---from simple star-gazing techniques, to amateur astronomy, to serious astro-imaging, to NASA's greatest projects, to cosmic oddities like Wolf-Rayet stars. Occasionally, readers are treated to some astro-history or other stories relating astronomy to other topics such a mythology, history, philosophy, literature, biology, archaeology, current events, etc. [Review Update June 4, 2008: As an example of this last statement, the new July 2008 edition of Astronomy contains an intriguing article on a old mystery: "Did Ancient Astronomers Build Stonehenge?" by Dan Falk. The article opens dramatically with an eerie image of Stonehenge and Comet Hale-Bopp from 1997; this image is a well-placed spread (filling two pages), capturing the minds and imaginations of readers. As a second treat this month, the magazine also includes an Astrobiology article, "Are We Looking for Life in the Right Places?" by Daniel Pendick.)

The magazine always includes reliable features like a lovely "The Sky this Month" pull-out section that describes sky events, constellations, and objects as they will appear in the given month. "Ask Astro" answers many questions on space topics, and Phil Harrington's "Binocular Universe" article always helps viewers locate the treasures of the sky. Bob Berman's "Strange Universe" is a good read, usually with a dash of humor and / or personality.

Updated Note June 4, 2008:

As an eyeglass wearer, I am always sensitive to layouts, prints, and text.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this magazine May 27, 2008
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I absolutely love this magazine. It keeps me up to date on what's happening in the night sky and in the world of telescopes and astronomy. Aimed more at the casual amateur. I tend to think of it as a lighter version of Sky & Telescope
Very beautiful and they are liberal with pictures of night sky objects. If you are just beginning out in astronomy this is a great place to start. You are going to be shocked by how many things are going on in the night sky on a regular basis! Not just phases of the moon and meteor showers here. They also have lots of stuff about telescopes which I really like.

5.0 out of 5 stars ASTRONOMY MAGAZINE---- A LOOK AT THE STARS April 29, 2014
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I love this magazine. I've been an off and on subscriber since the early seventies. In fact I own a copy of the very first issue........somewhere. It's a much improved mag since then. It keeps me in touch with all the wonders in the universe.

The star and planet charts keep me updated from month to month with what's visible in the night sky and the many excellent articles keep me abreast of all the space missions and new discoveries.

The down side is all the advertisements featuring really nice super expensive gear I can't afford to buy. But heck, I can dream, can't I? In the meantime, I'll be content to gaze at all the color photos in Astronomy Magazine.

The magazine is chock full of fantastic photographs and drawings.
Yes, it competes with Sky and Telescope.
I will give it five stars. If I could I would give it 4.9 stars.
Here is the reason and my only beef at this time.
I have been reading both magazines for decades,
since they were printed in black and white.
I am a semi retired professor of astronomy. I have
been teaching astronomy at all grade levels, elementary,
through the high school grades and at the university level, AST.101
if I may.
My complaint is that the magazine authors list the temperature of
objects, like the surface ( as far as a surface can be detected )
of Jupiter in Kelvins. What? Kelvins. Not centigrade, Celsius or even
Fahrenheit, (oh my gosh, how dare I mention the Fahrenheit scale
when that is the scale that the weather people use in telling us the
temperature here in the United States.)
Yes, on the internet the Kelvin scale is said to be used supposedly by the
scientific community. Funny thing though, not too many
scientists use Kelvin. When I watch the P.B.S. and take in a great
documentary program the scientists ALWAYS use the
centigrade scale. By the way, Celsius and centigrade are the same.
My take on this is that Astronomy magazine is doing a disservice
to many new astronomers and people of all ages by using the
Kelvin scale.
Try going on the internet and finding a conversion scale to
convert Kelvins to Fahrenheit. It is impossible. One needs a
degree in advanced mathematics to accomplish this.
I hate to say it, but I believe by using the Kelvin scale instead
of a more normal and useable scale the authors are trying to
be stuffy and arrogant.
