OAFs is an informal group of amateur astronomers, active in the Ottawa, Ontario area to talk about observing, equipment, astronomy and public observing events.

The main tool of OAFs on the Internet is a Yahoo mailing list. The list is not affiliated with any club. But all astronomy clubs, and individuals, are encouraged to post and add their public observing events to our Coming Events calendar. Anyone is welcome to join the Yahoo list, but newcomers may be moderated until they are known to not be spammers.

This web site (http://www.oafs.ca) was created as an easier-to-remember name to give visitors at our public events. After some growing pains we are now hosted at iweb.ca.
