Membership

Membership of the Sutherland Astronomical Society is open to all people with an astronomical interest or who wish to interact with or observe with other amateur astronomers. Whilst most of our members live in the southern suburbs of Sydney, many members live in other parts of Sydney, NSW and even interstate.

We pride ourselves on being known as the "Friendly Society" and new members are made most welcome. Why not visit us one Thursday evening and find out for yourself!

Membership is available in several categories:

FULL

A full member is entitled to run for and vote in Committee elections, receive a PDF copy of the journal (printed copy available if additional fee is paid), use of  the library, use of astronomical facilities subject to accreditation and an observatory key subject to accreditation, committee approval and qualifying period.
