Plain Astronomy – the new SPOG Magazine

We’ve just published the first issue of Plain Astronomy, the new SPOG quarterly magazine.  This issue  features observing reports, Do It Yourself astronomy, book reviews, lunar notes and some deep sky notes.  Thanks are due to the contributors and those imagers who allowed us to use images.  The striking cover image of Stonehenge and Hale Bopp is used by very kind permission of Mr Philip Perkins of Astrocruise.

The magazine is available as a PDF (download here) or through Issuu where it can be read online.  Issuu is currently developing an Iphone/IPad reader so by the next issue we should be available on these too.

The next issue will be out around the end of June so do please send any observations, images, amateur telescope making ideas or just plain interesting things to do with astronomy.
