Your location is great, a nice steep sided forested mountainside. Very Alpine.

Thanks guys ? I love it, when the sky objects comes up from behind the mountains. Jupiter with his moons or Saturn with the ring between pine trees, everybody must see that once in the life, it's beautiful! I will try to make some long expusure pic about dso-s, when they rise up, and make a gif from these frames. We will see, how it looks ?

:) Hmm, about the 3D feeling I have a question: Is it good investment to buy a binoviewer set? I heared that, it makes very dimensional the planets and the Moon. But the cheapest one, what I see on web, it's about 250 dollars and of course I need to buy 2 same type eyepieces o.O
