My July S&T hasn't arrived yet. Anyone else here waiting on theirs?

Got mine over a week ago - to be honest, you're not missing much. I think it's the one with the crabby letter from the crabby English guy with the monocular, and not much else.

I got mine last week, has a nice review of Image plus.
Shane, I dont know what you are refering to there, might you be mixing up magazines ??

S&T is the only one for me, I dont bother with the rest.

I think Shane is referring to the crabby Englishman's response to S&T's review of his "not very pretty" book (page 12).

I'd say that crabby old Englishman still has a fairly sharp wit and a good sense of humor.

I also received mine about two weeks ago. It is a rather lame issue (!) except for the article by Don Goldman and the IR filters which he now makes available for imaging the deep-sky in IR. Just don't ask about the price for these filters! :oops:

I also noticed the Letter-to-the-Editor by Sir Patrick and enjoyed both sides of the story.

hi all,

my Sky & T. for July arrived about a week ago. I spoke to their Customer Services people earlier in the year and more recently, had a chat with them at the RTMC at the end of May. Basically, it was to mention that the magazine is regularly late. They promised to look in to it and asked me at the RTMC to collate some details of the distribution to subscribers here . . . let me know if service is good, bad, indifferent and I'll send them some feedback in a couple of months.

Pat, I picked up issue 60 of "Amateur Astronomy" in the States . . . very nice write up about the Whirlpool last year . . . and the disco in Dooley's ;-) I've passed the magazine on to Paul ;-)

all the best,

John

I see the letter now :lol:
I have to agree that some very recent issues have not been as good as previously, lets hope its a temporary thing and not a consequence of the new owners.
As for P. Moore, I dont think his book sales would be affected by a review like that.

Thanks John,

I just can't remember a better time at a star party than I had at Birr last year. I have a feeling that I could get into a lot of trouble hanging around with Paul. At least I hope so.

We are within a few weeks of putting our house up for sale. If all goes well, we will be heading back to Ireland by the end of the summer to spend a year there ... or perhaps longer. If so, I look forward to another evening or two at Dooley's.

Oh, and not to rub it in anyone's face, but I received my August issue of S&T this past Tuesday. It doesn't normally come until the last week of the month. There is a review of the new Celestron 6" SCT (done nearly as bad as one might expect from Astronomy magazine) and an interesting article about a homemade drive for a Portaball Dob or Astroscan. Very clever if it actually works as claimed.

Thats a real pity, there seems to be a trend here from them to kiss ass when it comes to an instrument review, although cant you blame them, they gave the JMI binoscope some not so great comments but overall positive, a few months later there was a letter from the manufacturer disputing the review. :?

Well, I dropped an e-mail to S&T...let's see what happens.

Pat,
Hope the sale of the house goes ok and looking forward to seeing you again later this summer.

Clear skies,

I can't say I got my July issue of S&T on time, as I don't subscribe, but I did notice that my copy of Réalta did arrive late this month! :lol:

Michael,

I got my July issue two weeks ago, but my June issue had not arrived by the third week in May.
An email to customer services got no reply but the issue did arrive within a week (in different packaging to the usual), so two issues within a week!
