Dreistein

Sunrise, moonrise, twilight calculator

Recommended Posts

Hi, for planning my trips to dark skies I created this calculator http://www.dreistein.nl/dark.aspx. Just enter a location or select with Google Maps and set your timezone with dst. Moving over the diagram displays some additional info and data. Moonphase is calculated for midnight 00:00 and negative means waning, astronomical darkness is blue. Feel free to use (or not)...

Me too :grin:

Let me know if something is missing (like local summer time/dst or public holidays)

Having used this calculator for a few days now, I want to congratulate you again on a really useful tool. Your Dark Sky Calculator and a weather forecast website are all I need to plan my DSO imaging. I am somewhat surprised that more people have not picked up on this!

Cheers,

Chris

Fair play to you. That looks great. I have a few calculators but not one that shows moonlight overlapping darkness as clearly as this. It will be my go to location for planning. Very very good. Thanks

For those who use this tool: there has been a major update with official timezones and some minor bug fixes. If you find any errors or have a question, just let me know.
