Welcome to the Society for Astronomical Sciences
The Symposium on Telescope Science
The annual SAS Symposium has become one of the premiere events for amateur astronomers and for building pro-am collaborations. Amateurs, and some professionals, make presentations covering a wide range of topics, from imaging basics, to photometry, to spectroscopy, to instrumentation, and more. Observing targets reach from near-Earth to the edges of the Universe. If you're interested in seeing how you can contribute to astronomical research using amateur-scale equipment, this is one event you should plan to attend each year.
The Proceedings of previous Symposia, and videos of many of the presentations, are freely available on the Publications tab.
The 2019 SAS Symposium is scheduled for May 30-31-June 1, in Ontario, California. This will be a joint meeting with the Center for Backyard Astrophysics. The Invitation and Call for Abstracts are on the link below.
