    I had occasion to visit Melbourne Australia twice on business.  I also ventured away from the city to observe the southern sky, albeit by eye.  I observed near Bells Beach, a world famous surfing spot.  Bells is fairly rural, with low light pollution.

    Using my sky scout, I went down the list of navigable stars, observing one after the other.  The light from the stars was quite impressive.  The Milky Way was evident by eye, I didn't need aids to see it.

    Hi Frank,
    You may be correct. I've only spent a short time in the Southern Hemisphere and didn't know to look for the Magellanic Clouds until after I was back home in Georgia. I based my comment on the envy of the stargazers who had never seen them and looking at Terrasto.com and the 20 inch or so Light Bucket that the photographer had. I saw that he was near Melbourne where it was not DARK. My assumption was that either he could instantaneously gather more light than a human eye or that the 20 inch scope x time would allow his camera to see what I wouldn't. So much for assumptions.

    Now I just need to arrange a fact finding trip to Australia.
    Regards, Noell
