    hemispheric neutral and the tear out maps have the southern skies on one side and the northern on the other That s great for the folks in the southern hemisphere but I was disappointed because I had been using their Small Scope Sampler page which was on the back of the tear out map at the telescope I can t do that anymore Astronomy 3 is another big magazine here in the USA and the first one to which I ever subscribed in the mid 1970s using my allowance More recently I was getting both Sky and Telescope and Astronomy but there is a moderate amount of duplication same news stories no surprise there and I ended up selecting only Sky and Telescope Some of my friends have similarly had to choose between the two and ended up choosing Astronomy so you might want to read several issues of both before choosing one or the other Nightsky 4 is another publication by the Sky and Telescope folks but aimed squarely at the novice by eliminating much of the jargon and taking more space to explain the basics If you are thinking of getting a gift for yourself a child or a friend who has expressed an interest in astronomy this magazine should be on your short list SkyNews 5 Publishers of SkyNews magzine the biggest only Canadian astronomy magazine Terrence Dickinson is the editor and David Levy is a regular contributor The magazine is bimonthly 6 times per year and is pretty short compared to the big two The sky charts are not as nice as those of either Sky and Telescope or Astronomy but every now and then they print a photo realistic sky chart in the centerfold which is worth the subscription Mine are a bit warped from

  • Mailing Lists and News Groups
    best bet is to go to Yahoo groups and search for astronomy groups The QCUAIG group below migrated to Yahoo some time ago years ago now and there are groups there for astronomy in general groups related to specific equipment groups on imaging with commodity equipment got a digital camera and more Starry Night 2 Discussion of the Starry Night family of planetarium programs Sales information is available through space com 3 QuickCam and Unconventional Imaging Astronomical Group 4 Discussion of using webcams and videocameras for astronomical imaging See also the QCUIAG web site 5 for information including the QCUIAG FAQ Astro Photography Mailing List 6 is a list used by astrophotographers who swap information on tricks of the trade If you are interested in this hobby have a look through their archives at the above link I used to read sci astro amateur 7 regularly but at some point the volume just got too high for me to follow I occasionally still drop in and browse but the advent of spam harvesters that pull email addresses from new posts has made the cost of posting just too high for me sci astro amateur 7 alt binaries pictures astro 8

    Science Equipment Suppliers Accent Science 2 Lots of general science equipment with gadgets to equip your school or home lab Located in Buffalo NY Learning Technologies 3 This company sells Project Astro materials as well as other astronomy educational materials and games Located in Somerville MA hey I used to live there Edmund s Scientifics 4 Doesn t everyone know about this one Their have more items that really do qualify as toys in the usual sense but plenty of the little projects qualify as science lessons An who doesn t want a table top trebuchet kit Located in New Jersey Teacher Supplies Okay these are not really science suppliers but sometimes finding motivational thinks like posters and stickers is hard Trend Enterprises 5 The make distribute sparkle planet stickers Elementary kids love stickers and these were very popular with the 4th and 5th grade astronomy club kids The local store had them but had trouble getting more in stock so I eventually ordered online same price so if you only need a few try to buy local Teacher Storehouse 6 I don t know that they are really any better than anyone else but I did like the astronomy

    like the astronomy posters I found there particularly the one on the moon phases I don t like their Solar System chart though the planets are not to the same relative scale I find it much more useful to select one where the planets are imaged at the same relative scale Mailing Lists and News Groups up Software Printer friendly version Log in to post comments PDF version Navigation Calendar Gallery Constellations Messier Objects M27 The Dumbell Nebula Resources Astronomy Books Buying A Star Buying A Telescope Clubs and Organizations General Interest Imaging and Astrophotography Magazines Mailing Lists and News Groups Science Toy Suppliers Software Weather Information Tips and Tricks Roland s Corner Recent content About Copyright Search form Search User login Username Password Request new password Science Daily Mercury Mercury gets a meteoroid shower from Comet Encke Mercury gets a meteoroid shower from Comet Encke More Science Daily Venus The aliens are silent because they re dead The aliens are silent because they re dead More Science Daily Mars Antarctic fungi survive Martian conditions on the International Space Station Antarctic fungi survive Martian conditions on the International Space Station Rotation speed may be bad news for Red Planet pioneers Rotation speed may be bad news for Red Planet pioneers The aliens are silent because they re dead More Science Daily Jupiter New study challenges Jupiter s role as planetary shield protecting Earth from comet impacts New study challenges Jupiter s role as planetary shield protecting Earth from comet impacts NASA telescopes detect Jupiter like storm on small star NASA telescopes detect Jupiter like storm on small star Simulating the jet streams and anticyclones of Jupiter and Saturn More Science Daily Saturn Cassini completes final close Enceladus flyby Cassini completes final close Enceladus flyby How water escapes from Saturn Magnetic reconnection How water escapes from Saturn Magnetic reconnection Explosive energy in Saturn s magnetic bubble More Science Daily Neptune Evidence of a real ninth planet discovered Evidence of a real ninth planet discovered Mars to lose its largest moon Phobos but gain a ring Mars to lose its largest moon Phobos but gain a ring Simulation of 3 D exotic clouds on an exoplanet More Science Daily Uranus Jupiter bumped giant planet from our solar system This solar system isn t big enough for the both of us Jupiter More Science Daily Pluto Earth like planets have Earth like interiors Earth like planets have Earth like interiors Evidence of a real ninth planet discovered Evidence of a real ninth planet discovered New Horizons returns first of the best images of Pluto More Science Daily Comets and Asteroids Earth like planets have Earth like interiors Earth like planets have Earth like interiors Artistic space odyssey to broadcast people s messages to the stars Artistic space odyssey to broadcast people s messages to the stars New study challenges Jupiter s role as planetary shield protecting Earth from comet impacts More Science Daily Kuiper Belt Earth like planets have Earth like interiors Earth
