Good evening all hope everyone is keeping safe and not to bored!?
Anyway I may have an opportunity in the very near furture in relocating to semi rural location approximately 40miles away from my present location according to the bortal scale it’s a 4 and my current location is a 6 and was woundering how much darker it would be theoretically speaking of course depending on sky conditions and transparency etc.
apart from the planets I’m interested in all aspects of Astronomy and I’m asking for exsperiances from other forum members with similer sky conditions.the weapon of choice at the moment is a Meade 12”ACF sct and I’m mainly into visual observation.so for just an exsample we all know that galaxies do demand dark sky sites to detect more contrast and structures.however for an exsample M51 is quite a challenging object to observe and in a class 6 sky’s I’m able to detect nucleus type glow similer to a nebula with a hint of structure so would a class 4 sky’s allow to see even more structure in the spiral arms etc!?
