Outreach is an important part of the work carried out by CAS. We hold regular public open nights during the winter months. A visit to the observatory is a memorable experience for young and old alike.
The jewel in the crown of the society, the R. F. Joyce Observatory is a unique facility in New Zealand, offering members and visitors access to an array of telescopes at a dark sky site just half an hour from Christchurch City.
Becoming a member of CAS is a great way to meet like minded astronomers and gives you access to a wide array of resources. Whether you are new to the hobby or an old hand, CAS membership has a lot to offer.
