Stargazing at the beach

Recommended Posts


Over here in Puerto Rico (in the Caribbean Sea) some of the darkest spots perfect for stargazing are located on the beaches. However, I am concerned if the right-next-to-the-beach environment can affect adversely my telescope and equipment. Can the lenses and/or coatings be damaged by being too close to the sea?

SPM is based not a million miles from the sea at Selsey.

I've herd that observing over water is actually very good as it cuts down on thermal currents.

I'm on the look out for a small observatory situated on an island in the middle of a lake if anyone can help out at all?
