I like Sky at Night a bit better.

As a previously paid up subscriber of The Sky at Night magazine, I would have to say Sky at night.

I was a member on their forum too until they closed it. Then I came here!

Regards

Graeme

I had Astronomy Now for a couple of years (won the first year in the raffle at the North West Astronomy Festival, and subscribed for the second year). I've just signed up for a 6 months for £9.99 trial for S@N magazine. So we'll see whether I decide to renew that subscription.

I just wasn't really getting much from AN, as I get a lot of information from the web, so it wasn't generally telling me anything new. Some of the techniques articles were interesting, so come back in 6 months and I'll let you know how I get on with S@N

The April issue of S@N arrived a few days ago. I had received an email awhile back warning that delivery would be slow due to COVID. It’s no big deal to me since I can find current astro events online.

I dropped my subscription to Astronomy since it seemed redundant and I’m starting to prefer S@N over Sky&Tel. YMMV.
