somnambulant,, I can see the milky way faintly from the LeslieStreet spit and from any of the piers along the lake in the east end and from center island. but light pollution is getting worse so way up North or South to get a good view.. I can pick out Galaxies in my scopes from the backyard and did get a Quasar once. it ain't as good as from a dark site but you can do a TON of stuff from the city ,Planets, Asteriods,DoubleStars, cool picture I have that as a screen saver ;;EDITE:: LOT"S of naked eye stuff from around the City the clubs put on pubic viewing sessions all the time just check out the science center. you can bike up to any of the viewing sites.
