The SAS was formed in 1986 to promote Amateur Astronomy. The Society actively encourages Observational Astronomy, Astrophotography, Telescope and Observatory Construction. Many of our members specialise in one or more forms of observing, contributing data for lunar & planetary observations, comet observations, variable star observations and supernova searching.
The SAS foster a friendly and supportive community. Our mission is to educate and support local astronomers by holding educational seminars, upskilling, and sharing the cosmos with the wider community through outreach.
Whether you are a professional astronomer or looking for your first telescope, SAS is the club for you.
