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.
NEW BEGINNERS COURSE 20 October ON ZOOM We are pleased to announce a new curriculum to support beginners who wish to get involved with the practical aspects of astronomy ie: telescopes etc. It consists of an initial zoom session to cover the basics of setting up a telescope and then a field session to put that into practice. The field session is limited to 10 telescopes so that each person gets the support they need from the NSAS instructor. For more information, or to reserve your booking please refer here.
GENERAL MEETINGS Our General Meetings are held each month (except Dec/Jan) and are usually conducted at Regis Hall, as well as via Zoom. The meeting is open to everybody, i.e. NSAS members and non-members alike. The meetings are on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm (AEDST) and hence our next is scheduled for Tuesday 19th October. Please note that due to Coronavirus this months meeting will be via zoom only.
NOTE: Due to the coronavirus lockdown the club observing nights are currently SUSPENDED.
We will advise here when these activities resume. All our General Meetings / Guest Speaker Talks for the foreseeable future will be conducted on zoom including the Beginners Night on Zoom sessions. Visitors are welcome to our virtual Guest Speaker Talks and NAG.
