Program Description
The Society maintains a close working relationship with the Albuquerque Public Schools and the University of New Mexico where we are able to conduct our meetings and aid in the operation of the UNM Observatory.

The Society's own observatory, GNTO, is located at a dark site about an hour's drive from Albuquerque where we operate a sixteen-inch Newtonian Reflector on a German equatorial mount. The use of this instrument by all members of the Society and their guests is not just welcomed . . . it is encouraged.

Books, videos, and slides are available to members.

TAAS also works closely with the City of Albuquerque and the Sandia Ranger District to host public star parties in and around the Albuquerque area.
