Hi Newbie 79 & All,

I've only been to Gladstone once in my life for two nights and the light pollution, for just a good-sized town, is beyond belief! They have gone nuts in the port and the smelter with a gazillion low-pressure sodium light. In the centre of town the sky is bright orange. You have my pity. I'd be heading 30-40km W or better SW and put that awful light-dome as far as you can in the NE sky.

Not a great place to be in the middle of Gladsone for a beginner!

You can use the light pollution map here to find a better site:
