Regular membership costs $30. Student membership costs $5. (Must be a full time high-school or college student.) Patron membership costs $100, which allows you access to the club's 17.5" telescope. Patron membership is available to those who have been TVS members for at least a year, and they must be a key holder. All members will receive an email notification when the PDF version of the newsletter is available for viewing on the newsletter web page.
This is a refundable $20 deposit for the key that you will need to be able to access the club's H2O dark sky observing site. You must be a TVS member before you can get a key. You will also need to have heard an orientation lecture, and you will have to sign a key agreement form. You do not need to pay for this every year.
This is a $10 fee, which must be paid every year in order to access the club's H2O dark sky observing site. Access to H2O is only available to club members. You will also need a key to the site and the combination to a lock. Patron membership does not include this fee; so be sure to order it too.
A discounted subscription to Sky and Telescope for $32.95 is available to new subscribers only. If you already have a subscription, you will have to take care of renewing it yourself through S&T. This discount is only available to TVS members.
A discounted subscription to Astronomy Magazine is available for $34 to new subscribers only. If you already have a subscription, you will have to take care of renewing it yourself through Astronomy Magazine. This discount is only available to TVS members.
Donations are always welcome. We will use donations to support club activities and help maintain our club's H2O dark sky observing site. The Tri-Valley Stargazers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so all donations are tax deductible.
   
Use this to pay for other things that aren't covered above. For example, you can pay for a Del Valle permit here -- provided one is available. Be sure to fill in the explanation so we know what this payment is for.
