The official logo of the Bucks-Mont Astronomical Assn.
Bucks-Mont Astronomical Assn. is a group of amateur astronomers working together to improve astronomical knowledge and observational skills. We make ourselves and our instruments available to promote public interest in astronomy. BMAA members are a varied group of colleagues who share a curiosity about the sky. Some members are scientists or engineers, while others are artists or craftspeople, building contractors or college students. Ability levels span the range from novice to expert.

Monthly Meetings

Members and guest speakers present lectures or demonstrations on astronomical topics, followed by a group observing session. Meetings are held at the Upper Dublin Luthern Church, 411 Susquehanna Road, Ambler, 19002.


Members gather at one of several dark-sky sites to help each other hone observing and astrophotography skills.


StarWatches are conducted at several nature centers. The public is invited for an evening of stargazing and observing tips provided by BMAA members and their telescopes.
