Field for observing

Scouting out new observing location


What do you do when you want to practice your astronomy hobby and your own yard is full of trees.  You seek out another observing location. After finding a possible site and getting permission from the owner to use it I waited for the next clear night to try it out.  I will be looking forward to trying this site out in the future.  Being only 8 miles from the house this may be a very favorable location.
