Visitors and new members are welcome regardless of age, experience, or any equipment they might (or might not) own. We have well-known and popular guest speakers. Our own members also give talks and presentations about subjects related to astronomy. Why not come along to one of our meetings, or our public observing sessions where you will be able to see and use various telescopes, etc?
