  1. Dear Guy,
    My discovery of your amazing publications came at just the right time to feed and foster a new found interest in astronomy that blossomed during a trip to the Southern Hemisphere in the mid 90’s. At the time I knew only the basics and the obvious difference in appearance and orientation of the southern sky made me look up and wonder.
    Your Albido to Zodiac, Astronomical Companion and annual Calendars proved the perfect places to find the answers to my questions as well as multitudes of new topics to intrigue me. Your writing style and details expose the ready in the just the right way to make it feel like a discovery is being made with every turn of the page. Just the feeling looking up should be for all willing and curious. In the years since I have learned and shared, with countless friends, the beauty of the night sky on several continents. All appreciate hard work and the knowledge you have given through your publications.
    I wish to thank you sincerely for the profound pleasure of discovery and curiosity your work has insighted in me. Soon I will share with you an email containing a painting my wife commissioned and gave to me for my 50th birthday. It’s a rendition of a special activity at a very special place on the shores of Lake Superior in upper Michigan.
    I hope you appreciate the beauty in it and I hope you know that part of that captured moment owes thanks to you and your peerless work.

  2. I have ,for years ,so enjoyed learning the sky and what to watch for from your enlightening work ! I’m sad to see this work pass as things in print of this nature are a great resource,and I will be looking at your blog regularly and look forward to updates . Thanks for enriching my understanding of the heavens !

  3. I’m so sorry to see you leave this good work. And I can surely see why!!!! I’m 72 and identify. However, could you recommend a replacement that will now be your favorite to look to?
    It’s been over 20 years I’ve had your faithful guide in my hand and am glad to have one more year.
    Thank you for this wonderful effort!

    1. Thanks, Greeley. I’m not sure what to say about a replacement; as I’ve explained in replying to an earlier comment, no one will take the Astronomical Calendar over; and I don’t myself use other yearbooks or planetarium software. I’ve been saying that I’ll keep sending sky comments through this blog and hope to develop other publications, and my resolve will be strengthened by keeping you in mind!

  4. Guy,

    Oh my gosh, I can hardly believe that after next year, there will never be another Astronomica Calendar!:(

    First, let me say a big THANK YOU!

    I know that I’m not the only person who will miss your publication! But I begin to understand and yes, you deserve a rest!

    I sincerely hope that you will find other ways to keep all of your astronomical friends advised about the doings in the night sky above!

    With great affection & best wishes,

    1. Edward, I am intensely grateful for this. Others have sent me appreciative messages, and what I like is that each has a different emphasis, which makes them personal. Yes, I’ll be finding other ways; already, there’s this blog, and I think it’ll be telling you of the further ways which are as yet mainly inside my head and waiting to see if they can get outside as reincarnations of parts of the Astronomical Calendar.

      Please tell us all about the Basketball Player/Juggler in the Moon. Maybe not at full length, because a reply to a reply to a comment on a blog post may not be the place for that, but perhaps you can give a link to a place where it’s described.

        1. Basketball Player in the Moon, yes!
          Somewhat similar is the Serving Tennis Player whom I suggest as a way of seeing the relation between Cassiopeia and the Pole Star, on a page of my To Know the Stars.

  5. Hi Guy,
    Devastated that my Calendar collection will end at 2016.
    At 84, I recognize that eventually it’s time to rest and smell the roses.
    Cheers and thanks for the years of enjoying your arts.

    1. Bill: Thank you. Thank you.
      I’ve done it for 43 years and don’t want the prolonged annual toil any more. If you could see the toil I’ve just gone through tonight, wrestling to get files to the printer, you’d say: No more!
      I’ll continue to create documents about astronomy -and more – in other forms. The blog will lead to them, and will keep us in touch.
