The Woolly Woods Observatory in Ste-Chrysostome
located some 51 km. south of the Mercier Bridge, is a dark site with a clear
horizon in all directions. The building is home to a 12.5" reflector on a
German equatorial mount that has won an award for design at the Stellafane
Telescope Makers' Convention in Springfield, Vermont several years ago.
Centre members can use this telescope along with two smaller instruments
that are stored there.

Who ever said that amateur astronomers weren't a happy bunch.
Here is the newly-refurbished telescope out on the concrete slab.
It's interesting to point out that the observing slab is large
enough to accommodate other portable instruments.
