Hi from North Bristol!

Hi all

 

Returning to the realm of the telescope after many years away! Live in a highly urban location (complete with neighbours who love uneccessarily bright garden lights) so looking for some dark sky suggestions and like minded folk to observe with ?

Any members of BAS on here?!

 

cheers,

 

Rob

Hi Rob,

I've been a member of BAS for 3 years now. Good society - I've really enjoyed it !

We have a small observatory sited at Failand under reasonably good skies.

I've been in the hobby for 30+ years here at Portishead so not far from yourself.

Welcome to the Stargazers Lounge and welcome back to astronomy  :smiley:

Hi, Rob, and welcome to SGL.

Many here find LP to be the curse of their existence. Unfortunately, that is just the way things are nowadays. Hope you find a suitable location.

Enjoy the journey.

so looking for some dark sky suggestions

Welcome, Rob, to this friendly forum from a German stargazer (visual only)!

Just in case you haven't already found this:

https://www.lightpollutionmap.info/#zoom=10&lat=6701960&lon=-288505&layers=B0FFTFFFFF

All these maps showing light pollution have their limitations, but are helpful as a first guidance. You can (in the toggle menu) enable "SQM/SQC overlay and filters" to get the more precise SQM/SQM-L values for some dark sky places.

Hope this helps; welcome back to the hobby/way of life, and enjoy!

Stephan
