F ounded in , the goals of the San Bernardino Valley Amateur Astronomers SBVAA have been to organize amateur astronomers in the San Bernardino Valley area, increase their knowledge and excitement in astronomy and spread that knowledge to the community. Meetings and events include a wide range of topics such as: basic backyard observing, deep space observing, telescope setups and astrophotography. SBVAA welcomes novice and seasoned astronomers, young and old. Advanced amateur astronomers that join the club are provided the opportunity to communicate their knowledge to an eager audience that shares their interests. Advanced astronomers learn and share with one another often having the opportunity to view through equipment the solo astronomers do not own. SBVAA members are happy to help beginners understand the basics. Through star parties, beginners are treated to a wide variety of telescopes and equipment to learn about before blindly buying a telescope of their own.
