This is an introduction to the Great Western Astronomers posted to my personal weblog, The region that we pursue the Astronomical Hobby is Nevada and the Eastern slope of the Sierras, including LakeTahoe, but we have international contacts. Some of the programs that are conducted are public and private Star Parties, Telescope Workshops, Sky Tours, and the Gemini referral system that can be used to offer contacts to individuals in your area for the purposes of scheduling observing sessions or other activities. With permission, the forwarding of information is available to over 500 contacts. There are no dues or fees, free loaner telescopes and technical advice are available.
