Message from Sky & Telescope

The AAS staff (including staff of Sky & Telescope) are working remotely from their homes to support the social distancing efforts to contain COVID 19. While we are all working to support the S&T community, there may be delays in responding during this time. If you have a question or concern, please contact Camillia Taylor at [email protected]. Click here for information on delays in international deliveries.

This is a difficult time for the entire United States. Aero, our fulfillment partner, is based in Ohio. Aero provides fulfillment services for P&G. While they will continue to fulfill our orders, there may be a delay in shipping our products because they must give priority to medical, personal healthcare, and cleaning and sanitization products.

The Sky Digital Collection 1936-1941

By Editors of Sky

Format: DVD


Sky & Telescope magazine began as the union of two magazines published during the 1930s and early '40s: The Sky and The Telescope. The Sky was founded at the Hayden Planetarium in New York City, and the first issue was printed in 1935. It concentrated on astronomical information for the amateurs of the day: observing, telescope making, star lore, and more, in ways that now look both strange and familiar. It became an independent publication under S&T founder Charles Federer in 1941. The early years of S&T look a lot like the later issues of The Sky. The DVD archive consists of all 60 issues of The Sky and plays in both PC and Mac computers. Text is fully searchable-even the ads!-and you can print the pages you need.

The Telescope archive is also available here.

This product requires a DVD-ROM drive, as well as Adobe Flash Player to view individual issues (many computers already contain this software, but you can download it here). The individual issues are not available as PDF files due to copyright. The DVDs are accessible on both Windows and Mac machines.
