Hobart, Taz, correct? It looks more like 7 or 8 to me as well. I expect that the maps at http://www.inquinamentoluminoso.it/w...pages/fig1.htm might show averages over quite a wide area or are out of date.
Correct. While not much has changed here since the scale was invented in 2001, I guess the inner-city area is simply too small to have a patch of red or white on there.

Is there any way of finding a dark sky site (I'd be satisfied with a 3) without having to travel for miles and miles? And would a 3 or under even be that much different to the naked eye?
