Membership in Hill Country Astronomers

Club membership is not required to attend monthly meetings and star parties or to access HCA’s Yahoo! Group; however, we would welcome you as a member.

HCA does not have a newsletter; however, this Yahoo! Group serves as a way of making announcements, including astronomical and club-related events. We post documents such as maps to star parties, observing lists, etc., and photos of various sorts, including astrophotos there as well as on this website.

To access HCA’s Yahoo! Group, one of the group moderators must invite you to the group by email from Yahoo. Ryan Behrends, the club president, and Raeann Reid, the club secretary/treasurer, are the current moderators. To request to join HCA’s Yahoo! Group, you can contact the moderators at:
