The Astronomical Society of Tasmania welcomes everyone who shares an interest in all branches of astronomy and related sciences.
Membership is open to everyone, subject to a successful application.
There are no qualifications to join, nor is it necessary to own your own telescope.
In keeping with our aim of promoting interest in Astronomy, members are encouraged to actively participate in the Society's many and varied public outreach activities should they wish to. These activities include public observing nights, various school and community events and public education programs. Many members gain great personal satisfaction from introducing the wonders of the night sky to interested children and to the wider community. Members who are keen to share their special interests are regular presenters at our monthly General Meetings.
Initial membership of the Society is for twelve months, commencing from the date you are accepted into the Society.
Annual membership subscription : $40.00
Annual membership including subscription to Australian Sky and Telescope magazine : $90.00
There are no other joining fees. Members will receive an annual renewal notice prior to the anniversary of joining the Society.
