The AAQ holds, weather permitting, a deep sky field night for members, their guests and visitors several times a year. Field nights are not held from December to February due to the generally adverse weather conditions. The deep sky field nights are held at dark sky sites away from the interfering light pollution of the city to allow the observation and photography of fainter stellar and non-stellar objects outside the solar system.
A list of the proposed deep sky field nights for the current year is provided here. For further information on these field nights please contact the Visual Observing Section Director.
