April - Last chance to see DDO Canada's largest telescope

Stumble Upon Toolbar
I just received confirmation that the David Dunlap Observatory is shutting down tour operations. I expect this is the first step in the shutdown relating to the sale of the property.

There is a brief window of opportunity for any groups remaining to see it and I wanted to get the word out.

Any Scouting (and Guiding) groups from wishing to see the largest telescope in Canada have one last chance to visit. The staff can accommodate all age ranges from Beavers through to Rovers. But you must act fast to secure a spot.

The following dates are available April 21, 23, 25, 27,28, and 29th. No tours will be run after April 30th.

Group size is not important at this point. It can be 10 people to 70 people and can include family and friends. The fee is $5 per person. The minimum deposit is being waived.

If you know of groups that could be interested, please pass the word.

To arrange a tour contact the DDO by email or see

The 433rd Cubs recently visited the DDO and had a great time.

Thanks, Mang
