'Photon' is a new bi-monthly astronomy eZine which is issued in PDF
format.

Written by amateurs for amateurs, it focuses on topics that relate
directly to amateur astronomy rather than more esoteric, armchair-type
subjects or other non-practical-related topics. In the magazine
subjects have a more hands-on feel about them; experiences direct from
one amateur to another.

'Photon' has been designed so that one page at a time fits on a
reader's monitor. Many of the articles have hotlinks embedded in them
so readers can jump straight to the relevant websites from within the
magazine.

For more information and some sample pages, please visit:

The first issue is free to download. Future issues will cost US$3.00
each, or US$15.00 for an annual subscription (subscribers get one
issue free per year).

If you have an article or experiences to impart, please consider
submitting them. Authors will retain full copyright on any material
used. We would also like to profile various societies and clubs
(worldwide), so if you would like to provide some information
regarding your society (or any major upcoming events), please do.

It looks good, but I object to the encryption that prohibits
me from printing out the down-loaded copy. I prefer to
read my magazines while sitting in my lounge chair, not
while looking at a monitor.
