PVAO Membership Page


This page hopefully lists all you would need to know about being a member of the PVAO.  If after reading it you still have questions, please feel free to e-mail any of our officers with your questions.  Their address are linked above.

Membership Cost:

As of September 1, 2014, there are no dues required to join the PVAO!  Come to a meeting and say you want to join us and you're in! 

Membership Benefits:

1)  The main reason for joining any club is to share knowledge with those who have similar interests.  In this department you will find a wealth of information from members who have been involved in astronomy for a very long time.  This group has knowledge not only about the night sky, but the equipment and astrophotography.

2)  New members can ask for a commercially produced beginning astronomy handbook which includes star charts, but we'll have to charge you our cost for it.  We have a small number available.

3)  Members also become affiliate members of the Astronomical League - a nationwide group of amateur astronomers.  You will receive their quarterly journal - The Reflector.  A charge for this may have to occur when our "kitty" runs dry.

4)  Our group has 2 "club" scopes we loan to members.  We have a 16" Dobsonian used for outreach events.  Members own lots of scopes we love to share!

5)  Come and enjoy an occasional planetarium show at the Edgerton Explorit Center - free of charge with operator/navigator Dan Glomski at the helm!

6)  Yearly membership card!

7)  Perhaps most importantly you get to be a new ambassador for the greatest hobby there is!

Here's one of our club scopes.

Now go ahead, if you haven't done so already, check us out!
