Astronomy 2019 – Quasar Publishing has been producing the Australian annual yearbook since 1991. These guides are written by Australians for Australians. Astronomy 2019 has been compiled for anyone who looks at the night sky – whether viewing with just your eyes, a pair of binoculars or a telescope. The book has something for everyone from the basic novice up to the advanced amateur astronomer. This includes those with a casual interest who might just want to know, “what is that bright star next to the Moon?”

Every year (around October) the club places a bulk order on behalf of our members for the annual publication of Astronomy Australia. This publication is an annual almanac which sets out month by month, the dates and times for key astronomical events in the Southern sky for the year. This publication is an essential guide for keen dark sky observers.

The discount available to the club usually works out at around 33% off RRP. An email will be sent around to members in October requesting members confirm whether they would like a copy or not.


Australian Sky & Telescope is the premier Astronomical magazine in Australia. It contains articles on the latest scientific discoveries, space missions, technical issues, equipment reviews as well as useful observation guides for telescope and binocular users.

NSAS is able to offer its members a 20% discount off the RRP subscription price. Subscriptions on offer cover either 1 or 2 years.

Should you wish to obtain a subscription, simply email your request to the Treasurer via the club’s email who will contact you to confirm the payment arrangements.
