Costal areas are many times noted as having great seeing. Curious, If I bring my scope to a large lake will it have the same effect
if I look across the lake? It seems feasible that the lake would have a more even surface temp than land and might make the lower atmosphere
more stable directly above it. I also suppose a small lake might make things worse, as I might be looking through some updraft/down draft on the other side.
Unfortunately I live 30 miles from the southwest bank of lake Michigan, so it is a pain to get there and it has areas not so safe for night time viewing,
and I am looking East which means planets would be rising and not high over the horizon. But there are other folks who live on the north side
of the lake who could look across the lake when the moon/planets are near the meridian.
Any experience with this?
