The ChesMont Astronomical Society is open to astronomy enthusiasts of all ages.

Your membership dues provide funding for the Marsh Creek and French Creek Star Parties which are free and open to the public.

These star parties expose thousands of people each year to the science and fascination of astronomy. In addition, your dues help pay the fees of our visiting lecturers at our monthly meetings, as well as the costs of our annual StarFest that CAS hosts free of charge.

As a member, you’ll enjoy full voting privileges, access to our “Members Only” section of our website forum, membership in the Astronomical League, discount subscription rates to popular astronomy magazines and access to our dark sky observing sites.

New members can pay dues at any meeting of the club or via PayPal. Ongoing members pay on a calendar year basis. And remember, you don’t have to be a member to attend a meeting. Come out and see what we’re about and decide for yourself. For more information, or to discuss joining the club, please attend a meeting.
