what I do, is first start with objects in the west as they will the the first to set. basically plan an observing session before you go so you know what to find before when you get there. obviously depending on the view you have, that's the easiest way to go about any session.
either use online resources, or star charts or software apps. but start from the west/north west. also it depends on what you're wanting to see also. have fun and clear skies
