We are a society based in the northern suburbs of Sydney (NSW, Australia), containing a number of streams to cater for astronomy related interests at all levels. We have a number of core streams and activities at NSAS and these are listed below. Please visit the site regularly to get updated news on our upcoming events and activities.

NOTE: Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), club observing nights are currently for members only till the end of November 2020. We plan to run virtual General Meetings / Guest Speaker Talks as well as the NAG (New Astronomers Group) training. Visitors are welcome to our virtual Guest Speaker Talks and NAG. Stay tuned for updates.

We are pleased to announce a new support class for people who have recently purchased a telescope (both NSAS members and non-members). We have determined a way that we can have an open air class for up to 10 telescopes and we welcome anyone who has recently purchased a telescope to join us for 4 hours on a Saturday night to learn the basics of how to setup and drive their scope. The next course is usually on the 3rd Saturday on the month but check the booking dates. For more information or to reserve your spot, click here.

Our guest speaker for November will be Vanessa Moss from CSIRO. She will speak on data management at the ASKAP and SKA . In keeping with our COVID safe policy, this will be conducted via Zoom. This meeting is open to everybody (i.e. NSAS members and non-members alike). The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 17th November, starting at 7:30pm (AEDST). To join, click here (Password: NSAS2020).
