After doing my usual research\looking around the web I have bookmarked the following useful web sites I will keep this blog entry updated as I come across other useful websites;

Light polution web sites

I've used the first website to shorlist a few locations within an hours drive or so from my home for dark sky viewing

http://www.nightblight.cpre.org.uk/maps/
http://darksitefinder.com/maps/world.html


Interactive Observing Tools - such as Jupiter moon tracker \ Neptune triton tracker

https://www.skyandtelescope.com/observing/interactive-sky-watching-tools/


Star maps with planets \ moons of Jupiter

Choose the different charts from the Charts drop down menu to view the different maps\views

https://in-the-sky.org


Darksky weather forecast

https://darksky.net/forecast/53.4029,-3.133/us12/en


Clear outside - provided First Light Optics

This is also an android\iPhone app - I have downloaded the Android app and it looks and gives the the same information as the website

http://clearoutside.com/forecast


Telescope - Field of view tool

Useful for seeing what the FOV is for selected celestrial objects though a combination of different telescopes\eyepieces\barlow\reducers
