Martin,
It is surpising what you can see through light pollution, it might be worth your while getting a light pollution filter or an oxygen3 filter, these help darken the sky background which can help make some nebulae more visible in the scope.

Carrying around my 20" obsession is going to kill me,
but what a way to go. :)

Hi fguihen,

Welcome to the IFAS board and a fantastic hobby.

As the other guys mentioned, the South Dublin Astronomical Society are based in Gonzaga College in Ranelagh and use Cloon Wood, on the Enniskerry to Glencree Road, as our observing site. Our web page at www.southdublinastronomy.org gives details of forthcoming club observing nights but members regularly go out on other evenings if clear.

Our next meeting is tomorrow night at 8pm in Gonzaga when Dave McDonald will talk to us about Supernova searches and Asteroid astrometry. Admission is free and SDAS membership is currently free also.

Send me a private message with your contact e-mail and I'll add you to our mailing list.

All the best,

John (Flannery)
Chairperson,
South Dublin Astronomical Society
