Ideal dark site

Hi folks I've been a member of ice in space for a while now but I only read the posts. This is the first time I,ve written anything in it. However this time I want to picked the brains of the most experienced astronomers out there. I'm looking to purchase some acreage to set up an observatory for some astrophotography work. What I'd like to know is where I should by in Victoria that would have the most number of clear nights in a year. And if possible different areas in decending order of clear nights.

I dont have any Rembrandt or Renoir self portraits, but I just quickly dug these up using the Picasa 'Mug shot Finder' feature.

Hi David,

Just letting you know why you haven't recieved any answers to your question about where to buy land.

You put your post in the wrong section. This section you posted it in is for photos of members and isn't read very often.
You need to start a thread in the 'General Chat' section HERE

In 'General Chat' just click on 'New Thread' near the top and title your thread as a question: Ideal dark site in Victoria?
That way you will get replies

Cheers
Ken

P.S. I have also sent this info to you in a Private Message.

Latest on my still developing cam gear. Good for hiding on the side of popular bushwalking tracks and scaring the living daylights out of tourists....

Two shirtless piccies on the one page?! *feints*
Righty-o then, I'm staying within this section of the forum. I'm not a pervert, no I'm not, one needs to check that there aren't any sun spots on those tanned bodies, I'm doing you all a favour.

But you have a shirt on!

Thanks Brian for sharing that fully clothed photo. Was nice to put a pic to your name. And oh my, look at that long flowing hair. Very nice, I must say.

Melissa, I think it's time you shared your very pretty face on this thread.

And one showing my journey to drunken oblivion at my daughter's 21st , My family will never allow me to say another speech while I've been drinking- they couldn't stop me talking. I even broke my shoe while doing it (don't remember how ).
