I spent last night out at Camp St. Christopher on Seabrook Island, in search of darker skies, trying to avoid the pervasive light pollution that blankets the entire east coast. The few exceptions are wild life preserves and state parks where suburbia has been curtailed, at least for now. It was disappointing to see that Seabrook skies are not much darker than James Island’s, but nevertheless I was able to capture some images of the Milky Way and Jupiter, among other fascinating deep sky objects.
