Sky Quality Meter
« on: 15:49:10, 24 February, 2015 »
Does anyone have/use one? I've seen some online for around £100, which is pretty steep when I'm just interested in how dark the local skies are around me and at my partners mom's house. It LOOKS dark, but it would be nice to know just HOW dark :)

Got an iPhone? If so, download the app called DSM (Dark Sky Meter) it gives pretty good results.
