Message from Sky & Telescope

Hello!

Welcome to the new Sky & Telescope web store. We’ve been offline since August but are thrilled to be back up and running.

Transitioning our web infrastructure from the previous owner proved to be much harder and more complicated than we imagined. We apologize to each and every one of you for this delay, but we took our time to make sure everything would work correctly so that your browsing and purchasing experience is as easy as possible. We may not be Amazon, but our goal is to bring you unique products as easily and quickly as possible. We view ourselves as part of the community we serve, so getting things right is important.

As you know, the Sky & Telescope team works hard to bring interesting, valuable, and fun products to you, our community of astronomy enthusiasts. In the coming months we will roll out some new items as we get them developed and produced (like the eagerly anticipated eclipse-track Earth globe — it’s awesome!). If you have ideas about other items you might like us to produce or carry, let us know. Although we can’t promise to do everything, we’ll carefully review any ideas we receive.

Thanks for your ongoing support of Sky & Telescope!

Peter Tyson, Editor in Chief, Sky & Telescope
Kevin B. Marvel, Executive Officer, American Astronomical Society

2020 RASC Observer’s Handbook(U.S. Edition)

Amateur astronomers of every experience level rely on this compact, invaluable resource. Published annually since 1907 by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, the Observer's Handbook is an authoritative, 352-page guide packed with information about every aspect of viewing the night sky. It provides previews of the year’s key celestial events, such as eclipses, meteor showers, and planetary phenomena. Equally valuable are extensive tables listing the characteristics of the brightest and nearest stars, galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, planets, their moons, asteroids, comets, and much more. Nowhere else will you find so much stargazing information packed into such a handy, “must have” publication.

Sky & Telescope’s Eclipse Globe

Earth globe showing asia

This is the first globe ever constructed that depicts the paths of total solar eclipses — nature’s most spectacular sky sights. Transparent yellow bands mark the paths of every total solar eclipse from 2001 to 2100. Each of these is labeled with a small, red-rimmed yellow circle at the point where the duration of totality is longest, along with the eclipse’s date (reckoned in Universal Time) and totality’s maximum duration. Also included are the extremely thin paths of “hybrid” solar eclipses, which can appear total or annular depending on the observer’s location along the path. This unique globe was designed and constructed by cartographer (and avid eclipse-chaser) Michael Zeiler of GreatAmericanEclipse.com.
