Please feel free to attend any of our public events or to join SMCAS. We are a friendly group and our meetings involve a minimum of jargon or overly technical content. You do not need to own a telescope to participate in our meetings or events. If you do own a telescope or are thinking of buying one, we have members who can help you with advice based on their own experience.

You are welcome to attend our meetings and star parties without joining SMCAS. You need to join to take advantage of the benefits of SMCAS membership.

Annual membership in SMCAS costs $15 for full time students or $30 for your entire family. All memberships expire on December 31. If you join after June 30, your membership will be extended through the following calendar year.
