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.
The dues for the PVAO are $25 per year for adults or $15 per year for students. You may join at any time, but yearly dues are collected in January/February of each year.
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 receive a commercially produced beginning astronomy handbook which includes star charts. If you already have one, we'll work out something else for you.
3) Members also become affiliate members of the Astronomical League - a nationwide group of amateur astronomers. You will receive their quarterly journal - The Reflector.
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 the UNK Planetarium free of charge with operator/navigator Dan Glomski at the helm!
6) Discounts on Sky and Telescope and/or Astronomy Magazines.
7) Yearly membership card!
8) Perhaps most importantly you get to be a new ambassador for the greatest hobby there is!
