Ditto what Dave (see post above) said about the latest double Astrophile issue.

My copies arrived yesterday and what an informative and interesting publication, with more than 240 colorful illustrations and pictures, mainly devoted to NASA's Project Gemini; an astrophilatelic reference guide and resource base.

Well done guys! The Titan and Gemini articles by Steve, Dennis, Joe, and Chuck are superb.

The Astrophile editor, Jim Roth, working with VP Steve Durst, once again have put together a great philatelic journal with a key "space cover focus."

In this nearly 100-page whopping issue, our nation's second manned orbital spaceflight program, Gemini, is featured well.

It can't get any better than this, huh, or can it? We'll have to wait for the next issue(s)!

Hi David and Ken, Many thanks for your continued support and kind comments from both of you on our efforts to catch up on our publishing schedule for the "Astrophile," our journal for the Space Unit. I am working closely with Jim until we catch up and will continue doing double issues until we do so. As you may surmise, it is a high priority for both Tom Steiner, the President, and myself, and we are endeavoring to make it happen.

For the current issue, we have enjoyed doing the research and digging up Gemini covers from our own collections to tell the "rest of the story" for Project Gemini as news correspondent Paul Harvey used to say on his news program.

Many, many thanks for your enthusiastic comments on our Project Gemini issue. They are very much appreciated.

High five to Tom Steiner and the whole Astrophile crew for a job well done!

I received my issue Christmas eve. The Gemini double issue is great! Lots of great covers/autographs and good info. I thank you all for your time and effort for putting out another great issue.

Thanks to Steve Durst, Dennis Dillman, Joe Frasketi, Jr, Ken Havekotte, Don Hillger, Garry Toth, William Waff, and Charles J. Vukotich, Jr. for your time and effort! This collector and SU member really appreciates it!

Latest issue arrived in Australia today. A truely wonderful effort with a special thanks to Steve Durst for allowing parts of his CD Book to be published. A must definite keep! And it's in full colour as has been the case for over a year now. A great companion issue to a previous issue devoted to Project Mercury. And stay tuned, there's more to come. A thanks to all involved in producing this great journal.

At the same time Orbit arrived. Another excellent issue with a wide variety of articles. However, only a few pages are in colour which contrasts with Astrophile's full colour.

Just got my Issue #310 and the articles are fantastic on GEMINI.

If you have not yet purchased Steve Durst's CDs, then you do not have the complete Gemini picture!

A big "thank you" to everyone contributing to the ASTROPHILE. It is catching up with outstanding double issues now.

See everyone at NAPEX in June 2011, if you can not make Charleston, SC APS show in February, 2011.

I received the January-April issue of The Astrophile a few days ago and it's a super issue and everyone involved with it should be congratulated.

My copy arrived in Australia yesterday. Great double issue with a variety of topics. The high standard of recent times has been maintained.

The latest issue of Astrophile, Vol 56, No. 312, arrived today and it is another gem. The main articles are about stamps and covers relating to Russian and joint Russian-US missions. Congratulations to everyone involved in this exceptional publication.

I second that! Waiting for Astrophile now is like eagerly awaiting the next Terrence Malick movie: too few and far between.

The latest Astrophile (#313) has been sent to the printers and will be posted to members shortly. Significant efforts are underway to get Astrophile back on schedule.

Just received my Astrophile (#313) today 12/11/12, another thick and great issue.

Am wondering when these were mailed out to SU members, seems like a long time to get from the printers to the collector, (Ross's message said 10/27/12 sent to the printers.)

Anybody else get their issue much earlier than today? I paid extra to have my copies sent by first class mail. Just wondering if I am getting them that way or by printed matter.

Just received mine today (12/12/12 - should have got a postmark ) in Australia. Does seem a bit of a lengthy delay, although we need to add a couple of weeks for overseas airmail. Looks like another a great issue.

I was pleasantly surprised today when a FEDEX package arrived from my former employer. I had retired three years ago and I thought that I had forgotten something at work. It turned out to be the last three issues of the Astrophile (313, 314 and 315). My boss must have been holding them for my next visit to the office.

The three issues are in full-color and they are fantastic - very professionally prepared. Each issue is 96 pages long and contains a great deal of information on space philately. Congratulations to the Editor.

Received issue #315 in Australia late last week. Another great issue that covers a wide range of topics with a couple of articles devoted to the Apollo 1 fire. Congratulations to all involved.
