The last time I did Deep Sky was from Clay's Park but by now that's all light polluted.Do you guys have a club or group that meets for observing that I could attend?Have any of you tried Lamping Homestead for observing (Blue Zone)?

Quote:Just waxing nostalgic for a moment. Our house was in a cramped little Cleveland neighborhood off of Fleet Avenue. There were houses and trees every where so the only way I could catch a glimpse the southern part of Scorpius was by hanging over our back yard fence and looking down the row of garages. Then my dad connected our garage to the house with a roof that I could access from my bedroom window. I would take my 60mm f10 Sears Refractor with the Alt-Az Slo-motion knobs out there an set it up over the peak making available all of the goodies. At around 1am in Mid June (right after school let out) the Scorpius Jewel Box (between Mu and Zeta Sco including NGC6231) was directly South and I had an uncluttered view. Absolutely gorgeous in a low power (24X) field.Ed

Quote:I had the place to myself so I was able to play some background music. Free's "Fire and Water" album and "Magician's Birthday" by Uriah Heep were just a few of the selections.
