    Being a northerner, I have never seen the Magellanic Clouds. My skies are typically Bortle 3-ish. I can see M31 every time I look for it, even from brighter rural locations. Once, only once that I am sure of, I saw M33. That's it for galaxies.

    There are lots of other Messier objects that are naked eye, of course. M45, obviously. M44. M8. My most recent was M13.

    I dont know, done right it could add a whole level of terror. Imagine having nothing, not even the comfort of the stars to give you some reference and link to back home.

    Hello Jim,

    nex time in the King of Prussia Mall, put sunglasses on your nose and Ohropax in your ears.
    It helps not only in Prussia, here it helps on the Potsdamer Plazza in Berlin,

    Hello Jim,

    allow me please to correct you.

    Berlin is a totally boring bunch of villages, the only place I go to is Mr. Schilling's in Berlin-Charlottenburg,
    https://www.foto-schilling.berlin/pages/ausstellung.php

    Since the increase of prizes, I address him Mr. 1Shilling.20

    Best,
