Bortle in trooperstown wood? was created by Neil40
Hi all. I was wondering what Bortle number Trooperstown Wood is? I am heading down there on Tuesday as the weather seems to be good that night.
ill probably stay at Trooperstown Wood lodge.
Has anyone ever set up down there? I plan on capturing a Vesta animation. If its just a blob, ill try and get a few short exposures of DSO's and get Io transiting Jupiter. 

Cheers guys,/gals

Neil.

Thanks Michael. I did not know about that website. Now I can check what Bortle my own area is. I literally have spot light on all night from a building at my back wall. Its not the best situation. :(

Cheers

Neil

Hi Neil,

Wishing the best for your trip to Trooperstown...I would have joined you, but I've a prior arrangement made for tonight...it's a great spot, and it'll cool if you manage to capture Vesta...and nice idea about booking the Lodge.

Clear skies,

Darren.

Indeed. I am never going to the Sugarloaf car park again without a hammer. I use the hammer to take my mount down. I swear.
