Inside the Feb/Mar 2016 issue:

Into the heart of the Milky Way

When astronomers tuned in to watch our galaxy’s supermassive black hole feed, they found more (and less) than they expected.

The case of the missing M102

Did a false lead 232 years ago hide the truth about this ‘nonexistent’ galaxy?

The planet watchers

At the dawn of the Space Age, a worldwide network of astronomers kept vigil on the planets.

The astrolabe: astronomy’s first hot app

Loaded with features, an ancient analogue computer replicated the sky’s workings.

Monsters in the dark

Grab your telescope and observe these giant galaxies.

Test Report

Are you looking for a new DSLR camera for astrophotography? Nikon’s first dedicated astro-camera, the D810A, could be the right choice.

...and much more.
