About the Hamilton Amateur Astronomers

Canadian flag

The Hamilton Amateur Astronomers is a group of individuals dedicated to the enjoyment and advancement of astronomy.

We offer our members:
  • Informative monthly meetings at the Hamilton Spectator Auditorium, featuring both amateur and professional astronomers.
  • Beginner's Group talks to teach newcomers the basics needed to get the most enjoyment out of stargazing.
  • Star nights at the Binbrook Conservation Area where both members and visitors have the opportunity to observe away from city lights through their own telescopes and those of other members. If you bring your scope to Binbrook, other members are happy to help you set it up and find things with it!
  • Ten issues of our newsletter on line Event Horizon.
  • Opportunities to participate in our public education programmes, including the possibility of giving shows at the McCallion Planetarium at McMaster University.
  • Special group activities such as the  Cosmology Discussion Group, Book Club etc.
  • Telescope-making classes for those interested in building their own reflecting telescope.
  • Members can take advantage of our telescope loaner program. Borrow an 8" DOB, a pair of Pentax binoculars or a 60mm spotting scope for up to 1 month to learn the basics of using a telescope and help decide if owning a scope is what you want to do and what type of scope might work best for you.

New single panel brochure is now available online. 2013 Events Brochure is now available online. (printable) Informative Welcome Booklet for new members and guests. Helpful information about the club, introduction to astronomy and equipment, and recommended books to help you get started.
