I'm a new member inspired by the recent S&T article to give the E Aur project a shot. I have all the equipment and I should have a good observing window for E Aur in the early a.m. and I'm planning to give it a whirl tomorrow morning.
Q. I'm currently at 8,000 feet and I notice that stars on the horizon are quite a bit better than at home (900 ft) - do I need to do further adjustments or corrections to the intermediate analysis spreadsheet to account for the reduced air mass at this altitude? If yes, then how?
Inquiring minds would like to know!
