RE: (IAAC) German magazine Interstellarum

Owen Brazell of the Webb Society recently wrote to announce the demise of
Needless to say, the loss of Interstellarum, a Very Good deep sky magazine,
illustrates for me the need to belong to the Webb Society, NDSOS, or ALPO,
if you have an interest in any of these areas. Without a membership to
support them they inevitabily fail. Suggest that if you aren't a member, you
should consider joining at least one of these organizations, if only to get
their publications. Moreover, you'll occassionally pickup something
interesting along the way as well. Similarly, you might also consider
contributing your efforts in helping out your local astronomy club as well.
