The Symposium on Telescope Science

  

Notice: REGISTRATION CLOSED
You may register at the door starting Wednesday evening 14 June, $75 per attendee.

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 at least a little interested in astronomical research, this is one of the events you should plan to attend each year.


Go to to the Publications page to download the proceedings from recent meetings and view videos of many of the presentations.
