    Default May issue of Astronomy Magazine



    Yeah, I know it's not a book, but this is the best place to post this. May's issue of Astronomy looks to be a really good one. There is a feature on the 25 best telescopes; as well as some on the history of the telescope; and a special feature on Galileo. If any particular article proves to be particularly good I will post an additional review.

    The May issue of Astronomy magazine is one of the best issues they have run. Aside from ther normal features such as "Binocular Universe" and "Observing Basics" they had three excellent articles on Galileo and the evolution of the telescop. Also included in this issue is an article on the best telescopes. Another excellent article entitled "Explore The Great Bear's Galaxies" describes the many galaxies you can find in Ursa Major. This is definitely a must have issue.
