Just a day's fairly gentle walk through the Western Galilee area, Andrew. Nothing too strenuous

The night astro expedition was very hazy. At least some haze is pretty standard here nearly every day of the year. I've seen about three clear days in the last 11 months Sometimes visibility down to under a km. Also, although it was about the darkest location in Northern Israel based on the light pollution map, I could see the distant lights of around 200,000 houses, shops etc. all around.

Beautiful area The Galilee !
Yes I can imagine it's near impossible to find dark skies there and I remember the haze.

Thanks for the update and keep us posted (with photos too).

Just saw this post a pic section so thought I'd get in board.
I'm a 29 year old truck from the Mornington peninsula Victoria. Probly would not look like someone who spends their free time and weekend nights staring through an eyepiece but I'm sure amateur astronomers come in all shapes and sizes. Maybe this pic will give you guys who've helped me out an idea of who you've helped haha
