From where around Lake Anna did you do your viewing? I'm in Fredericksburg looking for darker skies. I'll take any recommendations.

It was at the Lake Anna State Park. It has some excellent small and medium size cabins (more like homes, actually) that make it ideal for imaging sessions over multiple nights. You'll have to do a little searching for open fields, but they do exist there.
