Og's Bog

The "Bog" is located near Schomberg, Ontario at coordinates 43º 58' 44" N latitude, 79º 44' 49" W longitude, and 290 metres elevation. The Bog is not a dark sky observing site because it is located only 50 km from Toronto, however because it is about a one hour drive from Toronto, it is still used by members (typically 10 to 20 nights per year).


Eagle's Nest Observatory

In 1996, The Bog became home to a second club observatory. It features a 12-foot diameter dome, and has now become a home for the club's 16" Dobsonian telescope.

In September 2000, this observatory was officially dedicated as the "Eagle's Nest" observatory in remembrance of longtime member Otmar Eigler.
