Some of the best skies are in Ontario's north.

And if you head North to Manitoulin Island (about 7 hours NW of Toronto), you will reach "Dark Sky Preserve"

My buddy, Paul Beduhn, is the manager of Gordons Park, which is a dark sky preserve, and over the course
of the Summer and Fall, he organizes and host's several star parties.

He does an awesome job, and he is also a budding astrophotographer, and photographer himself.

Paul uses a Skywatcher EQ-AZ 6 mount for his imaging work.

Gordon's park, owned by Rita and Terry Gordon, is an officially designated RASC Dark Sky Preserve.

That means everything is done to preserve the natural beauty of the night sky.

It's rustic camping on site, so if you don't mind that, then you are good to go.

It's really laid back, and you will also meet some other fellow amateur astronomers as well.

You can get more  information on their website at

Now of course, you'll want to make sure you are properly equipped for your visit.

And that's where we come in: Portable power supplies, Red flashlites, Dew zapping equipment.

A new telescope perhaps?

Just visit the website, or give us a call.  416 783 4140 or 1 800 580 7160.

I do hope you get an opportunity to visit Manitoulin Island!  It's full of many natural wonders.

Clear Skies,

Ray "Manitoulined" Khan

PS Manitoulin means spirit island.  It's also considered to be a sacred island
      by the
Anishinaabe tribe.  It's a very special place.{!firstname}
