Wir wollen Nicht-Philatelisten für unser Hobby begeistern und auch anleiten, Astrophilatelisten zu werden - aber auch Menschen, die bereits Philatelisten sind, motivieren, sich unserem jungen und faszinierenden Sammelgebiet zuzuwenden. Natürlich sind auch Sammler willkommen, die den Themenbereich nach den Regeln der Thematik beschäftigen. Wir geben darüber hinaus Überblicke über die verschiedenen Teilbereiche der Astronomie und der Weltraumforschung, mit denen zu beschäftigen es sich besonders lohnt.
