Milky Way - Need Help


Well-Known Member
Did anyone tried the light pollution maps to find dark places?
If we go by the below 2 pics - as per the website, we can find similar areas like Ladakh in around 100 Kms from Pune/Mumbai.
Or if you zoom in to your city/town and nearby area, you should be able to pick up a less light polluted location.

If someone from Pune or nearby wants to try, feel free to contact me, I will drive.

Apologies if this was already discussed and over-read by me.

Locating dark sky is difficult. But this website can definitely help! Thanks for sharing.
If you are planning to shoot milky way be quick. Galactic core won't be visible for too long.
