December Digital Edition Available

I'm not directly involved with the production of the digital edition of Sky & Telescope. But since I'm de-facto webmaster, there are always a few loose ends I have to tie up — and I also have to field complaints.

December 2010 S&T
All digital subscribers are automatically sent e-mail when a new issue becomes available. Unfortunately, in the modern world of copious spam and aggressive spam filters, e-mail is no longer the reliable medium that it used to be. A sizable fraction of all e-mails that are sent out fail to land in their intended recipient's in-boxes.

So to supplement the e-mail notifications, I plan to post something on the S&T website every time a new digital issue is made available. Stay tuned for the January 2011 issue, which should be ready in a week or two.

    I have subscribed to the digital version and can access the Dec. issue just fine. However, the Oct. and Nov. issues (which I accessed in those months) are no longer available to me.

    This is an unacceptable limitation to not have access to past issues for which I have subscribed. I so not consider this ameliorated by downloading the issues to my computer. This add to clutter on my hard drive.

    I will not be renewing the digital subscription unless this problem is fixed.

    The Archives tab at the bottom of the page does not work either. I’ve tried both the Oct & Nov issues and the site denies access to the earlier issues. When I click on the “mor information’ link after being denied the website says “You have reached the limit on the number of computers on which you can open this Nxtbook.” I have not opened any of the issues on any other computer than the one I’m using now.

    I can sort of understand not allowing one to access issues which were available prior to one subscribing (but that would be a big selling point for S&T).

    One reader said: “I’ve tried both the Oct & Nov issues and the site denies access to the earlier issues … the error message is ‘You have reached the limit on the number of computers on which you can open this Nxtbook.'” This is clearly a bug, not the intended behavior. Please send an e-mail describing the problem to

    I can’t seem to access the January 2011 issue that’s linked from the RSS feed. It states that “The Nxtbook you were trying to access is no longer live”.
