I am off out into the sticks in about an hour to try and find neptune using venus as a marker. Now where is that tiny blue disc, lol

House hiding neptune, but tracking Uranus & /P2006 T1 Levy via Cartes du Ciel - its flaming faint though. Reckons its m7.2 but I guess its not fully dark yet about 12 deg away from Jupiter

Found it. Needed bin,s 15 x 70 very faint but blue for sure ! Found a great new viewing area right on the beach. Also took a drive past the campsite I have been looking at for the star party, its very dark there.

Wasn't that low at 6pm, site is inland a little @ anderby, no street lights no houses no shops, nothing ! Well maybe a little sky glow from skeg, but that can't be helped.
