Hi all. Michael said:
Ø Had it been less humid, it might have come about half-way to the magnitude 5 chart, but no better I think.
When i measured the LM using the IMO charts a couple of years ago, it was LM=5 on the best nights, and LM=4.5 on average. I haven’t measured it recently, so i don’t know if the decline is due to different people’s eyes, different methods, or increased light pollution. Next time i’m there i’ll try to remember to do another and see what i get, for comparison.
Thanks for the update.

I forgot to mention the Globe at Night project. I looked at the charts, and the Farrington sky just slightly exceeded the magnitude 4 chart. Had it been less humid, it might have come about half-way to the magnitude 5 chart, but no better I think.
