The telescope loyalty program is ongoing for those who already have the loyalty card received from 2019 and prior.  These cards are only given to those who attend our astronomy workshops which we did in-person back then.  Unfortunately we have not resumed these in-person workshops throughout 2020-2021 so we were not able to give out those cards.  Please stay tuned for more announcements.

This program would not be possible without the support of Simon Fraser University, the Natural Sciences & Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Vancouver Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC), Vancouver Telescope Centre, the SFU Astronomy Club and our extraordinary volunteers.
