There is a one time application fee of $10 (waived for Student membership).
A Sustaining Membership affords the same rewards of a regular membership, however it donates a little more money towards the maintenance of the observatory.

In addition to joining and enjoying the camaraderie of these fellow amateur astronomers, the Benefits of Membership include:

  • Receiving our quarterly "The Astronotes" newsletter via eMail.
  • Use of the NJAA grounds any time you like.
  • Use of our facilities and library during our regular open houses and monthly meetings.
  • Ability to borrow a "club scope" for your own on-site observing session.
  • Reduced rate on publications like Sky and Telescope, Astronomy and the Observers Handbook.
  • Discounts on space items from Sky Publishing.
  • Access to the "members only" area of our website.
  • Invitations to our Member Only star parties and other special events.
  • Invitation to join any number of Committees to learn new skills and further support our organization.
  • Invitation (after 6mos. of membership) to take the Qualified Observer (QO) course for training on the 26 inch telescope.
  • Plus you'll be helping a totally unaffiliated, non-profit organization to continue serving public programs, improving the equipment, and teaching our youth the importance of the heavens.
