What does membership bring?
As a member, you will meet fellow amateur astronomers, and begin participating in DMAS events. Seasoned members can help you learn about your own astronomy equipment, or guide you on selecting new equipment, and how to explore the night skies. As a member you will have the opportunity to be trained on club equipment. And as a member, you automatically will have access to the member discussion groups on the DMAS website. Our members come from a wide range of backgrounds, and new members are always welcome.
Participate in DMAS Yahoo Group sharing
As a member, you will have access to the array of functions that our Yahoo Group provides. Currently this provides a way for members to send email to the whole group, including attachments of photos and other files. There is also an archive of club-related files, such as the monthly newsletters, and instructions about equipment and facilities, for example. Members can post into their personal photo gallery there, and view other members' galleries.
