You have probably see the advertising, have you seen the product? Sky & Telescope 7 Decades Collection looks appealing for a library, how about for home use? Has anyone here tried it?

Just wondering if it should be on my Christmas list.

Clear Skies!

Hi Keith,

I bought it as soon as it came out and it is a steal for under $300 in my opinion. Not only is it a blast to look through old articles and ads, but the funds go towards supporting a very worthy publication. I'm very glad I got it.

Cheers,

Russ

I purchased it and the new DVD for 2010 also. It takes a few steps to get where you want to go sometimes (swapping DVD's) but it's well worth the money having it all right there on my shelf when I need it. I still collect the magazines too but I'm spending a fortune doing that and I'll probably never get them all!
