Long Sault Conservation Area

Once a month, Toronto Centre members host a dark sky star party at Long Sault Conservation area. This pristine observing site is just far enough from city lights to afford stargazers naked eye sights of the Milky Way and many deep sky objects. The flat, gravel parking lot is perfect for scopes and mounts of all kinds. Long Sault is a great place to do astrophotography or visual observing for deep sky targets.
