Reviewer Tom Trusock, of the Cloudy Nights Web site, says about the 2015 Observer's Handbook "This book is the swiss army knife of reference books for amateur astronomy, and nearly as essential as a red flashlight and eyepieces. Just get one now and thank me later."

Acclaim for the Observer's Handbook continues to pour in, with popular reviews from Trusock, Gary Seronik, and David Eicher.

The Executive Director manages the daily operations of The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. This includes activities related to our charitable mandate, publications, and member service. Our current ED, Deborah Thompson has served us well, and has chosen to take a leadership role at another not-for-profit organization in a few weeks’ time. We wish her the best and thank her for nearly four years of service.
