  1. Nice report. We suffer from light pollution here as well but the Bortle class is 6. The closest dark sky site is more then an hours drive so if seeing and transparency optimal, we don’t go. I have observed both of these objects however and they do stand up to light pollution fairly well.

    • Hello, thanks for commenting! I have similar situation here, I have one hour drive to the closest dark sky -place. Light pollution is just something that you have to live with and adapt to it. For example choosing right targets for the prevailing conditions – when observing in light polluted site (which is usually near home), observe bright objects and when you have opportunity to drive to the dark place, focus on fainter objects then.
