I did this last year as a newbie.  It was very enjoyable. I might do it again this year with my son who has an keen interest. Nice to have a 'plan' to follow. 

I have a free Sky at Night subscription through the RB digital app from Staffordshire libraries. Most councils used to offer similar things,  well used to before all the cuts that is!

This is proving to be as bad as it was last year so far.  Not the recommendations,  just the blooming weather!

Very depressing weather!!!  I need a lot of practice to get back where I was a couple of years ago with imaging after a break.

West Sussex Library Service does the same. I have the printed mag through a gift subscription and download the digital version just in case I have to hang around somewhere with nothing to read.

Have you all seen the error on page 4 of the download? Repeated on page 55 of the new one?

My version downloaded this morning is saying "£16.50 every 6 issues", so a bargain, but not quite as much of one

The offer is definitely £16.50 every 12 issues here. Just checked to make sure. The promo code is SKYBA219.

Enter the above promo code into the "Got a promotion code? ADD NEW" box.

Late response, I know - it's been a busy week,  but here's the page I saw in the download.

If the actual offer is better, that's great. :)
