I hope you can make it to a dark sky site sometime.  Your skies sound positively awful.  Enjoy what you can of the skies by boosting your power to dim the skyglow and getting a quality OIII filter.

I had to look that one up.  Sounded kinda dirty at first. 🤔

Thanks, Louis,

Most of my stuff is in France, including my best filters.  For family reasons I've had to spend the last 6 months in UK so have been gradually piecing together second-string observing kit from second-hand sources.  I'll certainly look out for an OIII filter, though as I'm getting surprisingly good experiences, in spite of the LP, so if I can improve on that...  I guess the stars at night are still big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas.

Thanks for the chuckle at the end.
