Hey I live 15 min from Richmond Va.just inside the Goochland line and tonight seams to be a little lower on humidity so I was thinking about heading to a darker area  Leaks Mill park and taking a shot if the clouds stay away. Ive had my scope Orion Skyquest 8" about 2 weeks and am completely new, the weather was so nice up to the day my new scope came then it rained for a week strait lol.
So your to blame for the down turn in the weather, I was wondering who bought a new scope.
 
I'll have to take the fall for the bad weather. I bought my xt8i and 3 explore scientific eps all in a month span. My fault everyone!☹

If it is about the weather then you all should shut up, here in my country the summer starting by May, sometimes earlier by late of April, and about humidity also shut up, i am inside my room and i must put my air condition at full speed or maximum cold to feel nice.

Degrees in C during summer in my country as about 32C degree during the night and 45-50C during the day time, humidity is around 70-90% during the summer, i think above 40 degree is something like 100 F and above? and i can't see stars good enough same as where you are, so no great view, light pollution, HELL HEAT and humidity, i think my big mistake is that i got the equipment and trying to start AP in summer, maybe i should rest for about 3-4 months then i will go out for AP for sure.

As Chrysalis says, the humidity seems to "settle" the air making high power planetary views better than when the air is dry but turbulent.
That being said, dew on t your optics is no fun either.
I "hate" batteries, just something more I have tinker with. I have found that a home made art-foam dew shield extends my observing
by about an hour before dew sets in.

I will have to chime in as the fourth Yorkshireman here.
You guys should all shut up, you are lucky! We have no sea here for the laminar flow, it's just choppy turbulences over hills and mountains, our winters are cold and bitter, our summers are hot and humid, our springs and autumns are a neverending stream of thunderstorms and drizzles, we have two full moons a month and the mosquitos are big as bats.
The name of the country, 'Serbia', actually means 'jet stream' in Ancient Slavic language.

I was in Switzerland and Paris then in Scotland, those countries were like dreams for me, in general Europe is a dream for all us here, i mean Arabs in middle east, come live in my country for 1 year then we will see what you will think about then.

I agree that i hate cold that much, but we don't have rains that much so that we don't have greens or beautiful landscapes at all, we do have sea, we do have mountains, we do have desert, and we do have that sand storms which is much worse than thunderstorms, so don't compare, we may have something you envy us about, but you have also things we envy you for, give me greens and i will give you sun[in a joke way], hahaha

Come to Savannah, and you learn that in about 30 minutes, regardless of the time of day.

5 minutes if it's June-September.

3 minutes if it's August.

No, he should come to us, here humidity not just stinks, it will melt him, or he can swim by his sweat.

No i don't live in a desert, but UAE was a desert 95% and few mountains around, we built about 30% of UAE area and the rest is still desert, but i will tell you something, the temp in desert may be very hot but not very humid, while we live along the coast so the humidity is so high, and the areas around the mount is fine mostly those far from the sea, but the big cities from Abu Dhabi to RAK are mostly next to the sea level, so the humidity in the city is worse than the desert to be honest.

I spent a couple of days in Dubai and I thought that it was incredible.
Beautiful city and great food.

I just looked up your climate- seems we have very similar weather, except our winter will be a little cooler, and because we're subtropical, we get lots more rain.
