    The December Journal is taking much longer than usual to be delivered. Mine has not arrived and I am aware of others who have not yet received their Journal. I am sure this is due to a mixture of the strikes and heavier workload on the postal system during the festive season.
    Members can of course access the online and PDF copies of the Journal from the Publications area of the website when logged in.
    Kind regards,
    Andy

    I haven’t had my copy either, yet other periodicals I subscribe to like Astronomy Now arrived within 2 days of their expected delivery date?
    I suppose the more people who opt for the pdf version will save the BAA on printing and distribution costs, personally I prefer the printed copy.

    Just to note, opting for a digital subscription doesn’t save the BAA money, as you pay more for the printed subscriptions to cover the printing and postage costs.

    I went with the PDF, I prefer it. Even my ‘The Sky at Night’ is the Kindle version. I decided to embrace the digital age. I can’t remember the last physical book I read. Maybe Dostoyevsky.

    Telescopes: One Newtonian, three Maksutov Cassegrains, seven refractors, and a large SCT.

    I am pleased to report my Journal arrived this morning, along with another astronomy magazine I’d been awaiting. Hopefully others are also being received.

    I still don’t have mine in Chelmsford but the mail is pretty terrible at the moment and I’ll give it another couple of weeks before I request a replacement.

    Luckily, my journal arrived on the 29th, to be honest I wasn’t expecting it this side of 2022 as I live in Ireland and recently heard about a number of scheduled strike dates by Royal Mail staff in December. Hopefully, a compromise is forthcoming soon to end the strikes! In the meantime I can sit back and enjoy reading Decembers journal. Hopefully others will also receive their journal soon.

    Still Journalless, though as there are so many in the same boat, I’ll give it a bit longer.

    Happy New Year all.
