Welcome to Simcoe Skies! This "back deck observatory" is located near
Lake Simcoe, in Ontario
Canada. On this website, you'll find tips, ideas, data, and information
from my ongoing saga in amateur astronomy.
Please note that the webcam settings noted with images are for a 10"
Schmidt-Newtonian reflector. They are recorded for my own reference
improvements, and also to provide a starting point for others pursuing
the same targets.
SAVE THE SKY for our kids! More and more stars are disappearing from the night sky due to inefficient use of outdoor lighting. Please do your part... click here for information about what you can do to help preserve our star-filled nights and keep this beautiful natural resource for our kids.
