Once You've Joined Our Club, Consider Joining Our Yahoo Groups
The club has two active Yahoo Groups. The first, aslcnm, is for general club activities and announcements. The second, ASLC_Imagers, is primarily for the club's astrophotographers to discuss techniques, problems, equipment, software, etcetera. You'll need a (free) Yahoo account to join. No SPAM or flaming, please. The imagers list has frequent attachments of astrophotos. Links to astrophotos may be submitted to the aslcnm group, but we discourage large attachments in that group. To join one or both groups, just type in your email address below and click on the Join Now! button. Memberships are usually activated within a day (unless the respective moderator is away). If you've attempted to join a group, but haven't received a note indicating acceptance, please contact the Club President.
