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.
Meridian Telescopes is one of the few astronomy vendors run by a WAS member and former officer, Steve Greene. MTG sells domes, parts, electronic control systems,
as well as Antares optical equipment and other neat stuff. They have also showed consistently amazing generosity, donating major raffle prizes for many of our events.
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.
Jim's Mobile (aka JMI Telescopes) dream up, design, and manufacture some of the most cutting-edge equipment on the market today.
From their reverse binoculars to their dob accessory kits - not to mention their (somewhat) affordable 25" - 40" NTT telescopes, they're pushing the amateur equipment forward
as much as some of the big companies.
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.
Software Bisque's TheSky is widely used by WAS members for its great feature set and data and especially its excellent imaging support.
