I'm headed to Olympic NP next month and am considering doing some astro-stuff, which would be only my second try. The area (right around Ruby Beach, WA) is quite dark according to darksitefiner, so I figure give it a go (if doesn't rain the whole time). I consulted Stellarium and found that there will be a great chance to do the Milky Way, and the galactic core should make an appearance as well. Here's the trick though, the core will rise roughly east (and a little south), which leaves me shooting directly towards Seattle. The city is about 70 miles away from where I'd be standing on the pacific coast. Will the fact that I'm shooting towards the city affect the shot, or does darksitefinder take that into account and say I'm ok regardless of the direction I'm pointing? According to the site, I'm in either the 2nd or 3rd band of darkest. Of course, I can point out over the ocean and get some nice astro shots, and even some MW, but the core will be on the other side when it finally comes up. Please let me know.
