    I would recomend, if you have a laptop used for Astronomy, that turning windows automatic updates off would be a good idea, causes too many issues. Also stops those momments when you get out into the field and the laptop needs to install updates that its downloaded the previous day. You can always run updates manually every so often if you wanted to as and when

    Where i am at Royston, despite being about 7 miles from wakefield town centre it seems most of my light pollution is from Wakefield, my northern sky is much worse than my southern sky usually and for that reason i dont normally observe much in the northern sky. Wakefield needs to improve there street lights!

    Yea your probably right. The street lights near me though all point down. So the one in the next street doesn't shine into my garden. They should all be like this gain. That one near you looks unjustified

    Usually the councils are very good about installing covers on Streetlights
