I would point out once again in this, just as I have in other light pollution threads, that blocking a neighbor's lights is only blocking locale glare from the observer's direct vision. It does not impact actual light pollution in any way. Folks need to clearly differentiate between simple glare abatement and methods that will help to reduce actual light pollution in their sky in writing their posts.
Oh, absolutely, BrooksObs.
I fully understand I was only creating a "shadow" to hide it. But it does help my night vision. Which really, is a moot point because I am using a computer screen to operate and collect images. So what night vision?
Last night, typical for most evenings, a car pulled up in that common driveway aimed directly at our home and as often does left the car running and the headlights on.
Why is that necessary? To illegally park for a few minutes, and rudely shine their headlights into my home?
(Actually, typical traffic for a drug dealers location.)
But ultimately, I did enjoy being in "my little shadow" again.
If I had to travel up the canyon every night I wanted to do imaging of Nebula, I would very quickly find another interest. Or become a TV Blob like my wife.
Even though a friend and I did find a most excellent site high on a ridge in the nearby National Forest.
Packing up everything, and setting up, tearing down, and driving back home is a bit much for this old fart.
So I approach my Light Pollution Problem as yet another challenge to my choice of dabbling in Astrophotography.
My next step might be one of the "New, and Improved" filters that have come out since my Baader Moon and Skyglow (Neodymium) filter I use all the time.
I do wish they would come out with Airplane and Satellite Filters. If anyone hears of any, Please PM me!
