This is an 11 inch Schmidt–Cassegrain telescope that is operational in a forested region north of Montreal in Canada. The greatest asset of this observatory is the clarity of the night sky.

This observatory will capture deep-space images and publish them in social media in a manner both scientific and artistic. The goal of the observatory is to use social media to encourage its social community to engage the night sky with imagination, and to regard deep space as a place that challenges your assumptions, challenges your values.

The observatory is mobile, and will use different local sites as deemed suitable for observing the portion of the sky being photographed.

The observatory will be operational in mid-summer 2013.
