Sky & Space is a great Australian astronomy magazine covering the Southern Hemisphere, an area hard to find information on. The magazine covers astronomy, space and astrophysics and has a broad range of black and white and colour astrophotography. It is aimed at the amateur astronomer, high school student and semiprofessional.
This product is invaluable for accessing detailed information from the relevant back issues of Southern Astronomy/Sky and Space.
Nearly all astronomical objects have been covered including galaxies, stars and quasars plus all the photographs. Now you should be able to find what you are looking for in the night sky!

Australia also was a tough market to make money out of in astronomy.
In August 2015, I discovered this has same editor as Critical Comms, the previous editor of Southern Astronomy Jonathan Nally! This is where Australian astronomy ended.
In November 2018, I discovered this new astronomy ecommmerce and information site run by Jonathan Nally past editor of Sky & Space and current editor of Australian Sky & Telescope.

The subject index was based on T-Rex, the astronomy thesaurus produced by the Anglo-Australian Observatory, Sydney. It is now searchable via Web interface and can no longer be downloaded freely in Mac, PC or UNIX format.
Deepsky Astronomy Software
In South Bank, Brisbane, at World Science Festival in 2018, I went to astronomy night and tried large telescopes and saw many mobile apps that control motorised telescopes to help locate a star or planet.
Person picks object in app in night sky then app sends signal to motor drive in telescope and it moves the telescope to find the object ready for person to view.
I saw Mars, Jewel Box Constellation (Crux) and the craters in the Moon.
There was Brisbane Astronomical Society in New Farm helping out by loaning large telescope to let people have a look with aid of volunteers.
I had several mobile apps that allowed me to point phone camera at sky with overlay so I could identify objects in night sky.
Plenty of CCD images of deep sky objects!

In July 2019, I watched GSLV MKIII launch on Facebook in watch party of electrical and electronics engineers group I am in.
By 7 Sep 2019, GSLV MKIII will land an unmanned lunar lander on south pole of moon for scientific experiments.
Lander rolled over when landing and has not been righted or observed as it is on dark side of moon and is waiting for another lander from another country to right it or find out what happened to it (9/19).
