Our corporate sponsors help the Society with generous donations of equipment and other items for club use and fundraising. They help us - please help them by giving them your business.
Sirius Astro Products is another company run by a WAS member and former officer, Bill Beers. Bill sells useful products for the astrophotographer: red filters
for your laptop screen and a lightweight but sturdy computer cave to shield your computer from the elements and other astronomers from your screen.
Orion Telescopes and Binoculars is a telescope design and sales company heavily represented in the telescope collections of WAS members.
Their dedication to selling people the right telescope, their willingness to innovate, and their customer service organization are all reasons their
customers keep coming back. Their generosity towards us has been consistent and heartwarming.
Oberwerk Binoculars (aka bigbinoculars.com) supply advanced binoculars at strikingly low prices. 2013 marked the first year they donated to the WAS.
Software Bisque's TheSky is widely used by WAS members for its great feature set and data and especially its excellent imaging support.
If you're in need of software for telescope control, to help you create object lists for your observing award requirements, or just software to let you
voyage to the edge of the solar system, check out Software Bisque's products today! Software Bisque has been an extremely generous and reliable donor for years.
Oceanside Photo and Telescope is a great company dedicated to supporting the amateur astronomical community, as they've shown towards
the W.A.S. for years. Their OPT Lifetime Rewards program is free to all members of astronomy clubs - sign up and save!
Sky & Telescope Magazine is a venerably yet still lively magazine that many in the Society subscribe to. They've published many essential
observing books over the years that we strongly recommend.
Astronomy Magazine is a consistent supporter of amateur astronomy, as well as an excellent publication that many in the Society subscribe to.
The Astronomical Society of the Pacific, founded in 1889, increases the understanding and appreciation of astronomy by engaging scientists, educators, enthusiasts and the public to advance science and science literacy.
We rely on them for materials for public presentations, and they were generous enough to donate to our annual fundraiser raffle as well.
