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.
