The Toronto Centre has a Telescope and Equipment Loan Program for its members. It's a great way to try equipment you may be considering for purchase, or to extend your observing/imaging to new systems and targets.
You must be a member of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada - Toronto Centre.
You should be prepared to present your membership card when picking up the instrument.
Equipment may be picked up from a location arranged with aTelescope Loan Program Coordinator and may be at a scheduled meeting of the Toronto Centre or at the David Dunlap Observatory.
Equipment must be returned within four weeks of receiving it (two weeks for popular models) unless other arrangements are made.
