The club holds picnics and campouts and the only limitation is volunteers to plan events or to help with our various committees. There is something for everyone – no telescope required!
Each RAC Membership comes with membership in the Astronomical League which includes a subscription to their quarterly magazine, “The Reflector”. Complete observing challenges for certificates and pins.
Get access to our members only email groups. Find out about impromptu observing sessions, ask questions about the hobby, and learn what’s going on in the hobby.
RAC has a collection of loaner telescopes that you can check out for a minimum of three months. WE have several different types of telescopes so you can try before you buy, or if you own a telescope, try something different.
