Sky & Telescope (S&T) is a monthly American magazine covering all aspects of amateur astronomy, including the following:

The articles are intended for the informed lay reader and include detailed discussions of current discoveries, frequently by participating scientists. The magazine is illustrated in full color, with both amateur and professional photography of celestial sights, as well as tables and charts of upcoming celestial events.

Sky & Telescope was founded by Charles A Federer and his wife Helen Spence Federer and began publication at Harvard College Observatory in November 1941, as the result of the merger of the separate magazines, The Sky and The Telescope.[1] It is currently published by Sky Publishing Corporation, a division of New Track Media, LLC,[2] in turn owned by the private equity firm Boston Ventures.[3]

The magazine played an important role in the dissemination of knowledge about telescope making, through the column "Gleanings for ATMs" that ran from 1933 to 1990.

Its main competitor is Astronomy.
