Located near Yarker, Ontario, Canada (44.22.39 N 76.45.47 W    155M Elevation) in the Township of Stone Mills

Our Clear Sky Clock: StarlightCascade is a reference both to the StarlightCascade Observatory and the StarlightCascade Gardens of Kim and Kevin
This is our home built roll-off roof observatory. The Observatory was built in the fall of 2003 and consists of an 8x10' deck with an 8x10' garden shed on top of it. The roof was redesigned to detach from the shed and the roll-off track was built. Since then, it has had many modifications, as the roof has blown off once in a severe wind storm and once had the doors blown in from a hurricane :).
