Another Question
« on: June 13, 2019, 03:49:57 pm »
I've got most of my equipment and got it put together, so now, where is a good place to go to use it????  Robinson Preserve is not open at night, unless we have something scheduled, and I need to find a place that I can go and set up my telescope.. I live in West Bradenton, and would like a place that is somewhat close...  I just can't come up with any ideas...

HELP !!!!!

Hi Dave:
It's a bad time to test now, the summer clouds have taken over.

Most of us use Crowley on darker sky (no moon) weekends, September through May. Your best bet now is to find any opening in the clouds you can and use it where you live (or anywhere near where you live) on the Moon, Jupiter and Saturn. They are either out now or will be shortly. You don't need a dark sky for these objects.

I remember an old club member back in the day using the parking lot at 59th Street boat ramp.
