Guest Speakers: The ASNSW engages guest speakers from leading Australian and overseas Astronomical institutions to address our meetings. In these talks you will hear about their latest research on a wide range of topics of astronomical interest. We also have talks from ASNSW members speaking on their latest projects or topics of interest to amateur observers. If you have an interest in Astronomy or are thinking of joining the ASNSW, come along to one of our Scheduled Meetings to listen to our guest speakers. Visitors are welcome. Refreshments are provided after the meeting.
Astroimaging: One of the significant strengths of the ASNSW is its Astroimaging Group. The group holds monthly Astroimaging Meetings. You do not need to be a member of the ASNSW to join the Astroimaging email mailing list. Just follow the instructions at “Manage Mailing Lists“, and your email address can be added to the list.
