Observatory Supporting members

By registering as one of our 100 Observatory Supporting Members, either individually or as a Family*, for a modest annual subscription you can become part of the Observatory, with the chance to meet regularly to learn about the night sky and use the equipment to gaze at our remarkable starscape.

*Families Supporting Membership offers a discounted rate  for up to two adults and 2 children under the age of 16.  Because of the nature of the Observatory, and the stargazing events, children attending events must be aged 6 or over and youngsters under the age of 16 must always be accompanied and supervised by a responsible adult. 

As a registered Observatory Supporting Member or Supporting Family*:

  • You can be proud to be listed on our website as one of our 100 Observatory Supporting Members

PLEASE NOTE: Each Supporting Member needs to use a separate e-mail address

Please note that our automated membership system requires each member to be registered with an individual e-mail address (i.e. two members cannot use the same e-mail address).  Should you wish to register more than one member with the same e-mail address, please apply for either a Family or Corporate supporting membership where there is a single group administrator who can receive e-mail notifications from the Observatory on behalf of a group of members.
