What do our Members say?

Anna P.

I embarked on my astrophotography journey by joining SAIA. I've always harbored a love for the night sky, but it was at one juncture that I realized my desire to capture its various objects through photography. Given my limited knowledge and uncertainty about how to begin, I was immensely grateful for the opportunity to join the association. From the outset, I received substantial support and guidance in my initial attempts at astrophotography. One aspect of SAIA that I find especially appealing is the diverse skill level of its members, which spans from novices to seasoned photographers. In this way, we are all able to learn from each other, sharing in and contributing to one another's journeys.
