Sky & Telescope Videos

Many topics in astronomy are ideally explained in print — but not all. For instance, it's a lot easier to show how to use a telescope than to put it into words. And watching an author talk about an abstruse topic often helps bring it to life. Below you'll find a sampling of our videos.
