The Western Sydney Amateur Astronomy Group (WSAAG) is a group of enthusiastic and dedicated amateur astronomers based in the western suburbs of Sydney, NSW, Australia.

WSAAG provides a focus for people interested in astronomy to meet, do astronomy and have fun. Members come from all walks of life and have a diverse range of interests, some have telescopes and some don’t.

We don’t mind if you own a push-to or a go-to telescope or if you don’t own a telescope at all. You don’t need to know the sky and you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to join.

All you need to join is anything ranging from an interest to a passion for astronomy.

The club meets at the Western Sydney University, Penrith Observatory on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm.

Twice a month there is also dark sky observing for WSAAG members at the Linden observing site in the Blue Mountains.

As a club member, you have access to people with knowledge in many areas, including:

  • Buying your first telescope or binoculars
  • Setting up and using your equipment
  • Setting up a home observatory
  • Building your own telescope
  • DIY dew heaters, Hartmann masks, power supplies etc.
  • Locating planets, galaxies, nebulae, constellations etc.
  • Polar alignment
  • Getting good focus
  • Astro imaging
  • Software recommendations
