If you are a current subscriber to
Astronomy and/or Sky & Telescope magazine or even if you
do not yet subscribe this is a member benefit that you simply
must take advantage of. By subscribing to these magazines
via the club you will save around $10 per subscription. Just
think of it as cutting the cost of your membership to the
OCA by up to $20 per year (if you subscribe to both magazines).
These magazines allow us to subscribe
members as one group each year - and they extend the special
rate to all our members at that time only. The club makes
no money whatsoever for doing this - we simply want to pass
on this great price as a service to our members. Our Treasurer
and Membership secretary Charlie Oostdyk deserves a great
deal of praise from all the members for this quite fantastic
service that he manages on behalf of the club.
Astronomy Magazine = $34 - (Regular
rate is $42.95 - You save $8.95)
Sky & Telescope Magazine
= $33 - (Regular rate is $42.95 - You save $9.95)
(These rates are current for 7/2008.
Consult the August, September, or October Sirius Astronomer
newsletter for current rates.)
Due to a change by the publisher, renewals of current
subscriptions should now be made directly through Sky and Telescope -
Press the Renew tab at the top of their webpage,
or call: 1-800-253-0245. Have your subscriber number or e-mail address handy.
New subscriptions at the club rate must still be made through Orange County
Astronomers and then renewed through the publisher.
We submit the subscriptions to the
magazines in October. These subscriptions are for the upcoming January
through December calendar year. The October meeting is the last
chance to submit your details and check to Charlie.
No problem. We can extend your subscription
for a further year at the club rates.
Pay by check (or cash) made out to
Orange County Astronomers. If you are a current subscriber
it will help immensely if you can include an address label or billing
invoice from your magazine. You can either bring this to an OCA Meeting
and personally give them to Charlie or you can send them to
the following address;
