Features

Here, There, and Everywhere?

Which came first - galaxies or the supermassive black holes that lurk in their centers? New evidence hints that the galaxies we see grew from the inside out.

Predicting the Past

With giant new telescopes at their disposal, astronomers can now see back to the time when stars and galaxies first flooded the universe with light.

Primetime

Astronomers must compete fiercely for the most precious commodity on the market - research time on the biggest and best telescopes.

Taking the High Road

A trip to the mountaintop brings one amateur astronomer closer to nature and, more importantly, to the deep-sky objects he loves.

Telescopes for the Masses

Combine easy setup with sharp optics and computerized operation in an affordable package and you have Meade's new line of ETX refractors.

Celestial Portraits: Pictor, Dorado, & Mensa

These southern consellations might not merit a second look if not for the brilliant star clusters and splashy nebulae of the biggest and brightest galaxy visible from Earth.

Sharpen Your Images

While a bigger telescope will always deliver brighter images, it won't necessarily produce sharper images.
