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.
