Dark Skies Canada

Postby starhunter55 » Mon Jul 12, 2010 10:23 pm

hi, im adding my 2 sense on light pollution, in northern Canada, we do have awesome skies for astronomy. a 4 inch refractor equals a 10 inch dob from the city, but you can see all the m-objects with binos 50mm. but for the future reference, i will let my astro photos speak for themselves, if it ever stops raining.lol
Does anyone have a test that i could tackle to test if my sky is indeed dark as weall say they are, (must be photographic example).thanks ...

here is a peak at my attempt @ the ISS...
