Enjoy.
You should be able to get it from a good bookshop as well.
Just to add I have most of the last 20 years issues.
Cheers

Do you think the book was good? Has it helped with observing sessions? I'm considering getting it myself
Cheers

Hi Lacky

Although the year is half gone the book is still worth getting. I've found it to be an invaluable resource of what to watch out for in our night sky month by month. Like Astoron mentioned, I too have every issue back to 1997 and I find that it helps me to plan out my week / month observing.
Definitely worth buying.
