    Default Amaterus stargazing places/meetings around Montreal



    Hello,

    i was wondering if you guys would like to meet to do some stargazing, i am not motivated enough when i am all alone in my backyard . is there such place around/in montreal where you guys meet? i am only referring to amateur gathering, not those organised by the astro clubs. i am open to suggestions. you can email me (valix.matei@gmail.com) or text (514-755-2620)

    Vali, I'd be interested in some joint telescoping. I live in Montreal, near the Atwater Market, and usually just go out along the Lachine Canal, it's dark enough to see the brighter Messier objects and many nice double stars. Have not travelled out of the city for darker skies as I don't really know my way around there. However, I am away for the summer, will be back late August so perhaps let's get in touch then about doing some stargazing. Regards, Mark

    awesome to hear mark. i definetely want that. for amateurs out there around montreal, i am thinking to invite 1-2people with their scopes in my backyard for some stargazing. anyone interested? this weekend the weather looks amazing. and by the way, i live in lachenaie (the website doesnt let me choose this for my sig). so, let me know is you guys are interested. the 'cement' are in my backyard doesnt allow more than 2-3 scopes. cheers

    As I said, I am away from Montreal for the summer, back late August. Until then, clear skies! Mark
