Hallo, Andreas, und willkommen hier! (from a SW-German stargazer and Dobsonaut (and ex-Gelbfüßler btw.))

Splendid equipment, btw. Where do you observe mainly? Pfälzer Wald? Schwarzwald?

Hi Stephan. Thank you.

Mainly I observe nearby Karlsruhe. 20km to the soth I´ve found a nice place for observing. But I plan to do short trips to darker places next year, with my 16" Dobs.

How is it in the Odenwald? Any recommendations?

Regards

Andreas

Hello, Andreas,

my location (Mossautal) is already blessed with 21+ MPSAS skies, so I can make use of all my scopes from home. But there are even darker skies towards the Hessen-Bavarian border (the former Limes line), especially the region Würzberg - Breitenbuch - Hesseneck-Hesselbach; reaching the Bortle 3 class; have a look:

Years ago, I observed with the 18" from a location south of Breitenbuch - an elevated plain, meadows, free 360° panoramic view; lights only N (and switched off 23.00). Marvellous. At that time, I lived, worked and observed in Waldleiningen (Klinik Schloß Waldleiningen) just a few kms SSE; almost the same dark sky, but not that panoramic view.

Thank you, Stephan, for the tips. I appreciate that quite a lot.
