Wearing a snake pliskin eye patch

Try adding a bit of foam to the eye patch to eradicate the stray light. I use one and it's great I put it on before I leave the house to start the dark adaptation in my observing eye and maintaining it if I come back in the house for a brew.

As an alternative you could try an observing hood, try with an old dark towel to cover your head whilst at the eyepiece.

observing hood would help - a black T shirt worn with your head only through works OK too.

I am thinking of making a 'cloth obs' with some washing lines, poles/a frame and black velvet or similar and create a squared off area for observing. this should create a dark area 'immune' from neighbours' lights going on and such.
