The Amateur Astronomers Association has an agreement with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation that allows us to have observing sessions at North-South Lake, located in Haines Falls, New York, in the Catskill Mountains. This is an exceptionally dark location for deep-sky observing. Our agreement allows only club members to participate.
There is a special Dark Sky Observing Google Group that members can use to reserve a spot for an observing session, to coordinate rides and carpooling, and to share photos after each event:
If you are an AAA member but do not yet have access to this group, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have general questions, please contact one of our event chairs at email@example.com.
