A Useful Skywatching Page
My Brother has sent me a link which people may find interesting and helpful. CreatioNova is a website that allows you to find out what is visible in the night sky. It is customisable for location, time of observation, limiting magnitude and objects you want to see, and returns Sunrise/Sunset, Moonrise/Moonset, planets, deep-sky objects and constellations. Deep-sky objects and Constellations come with links to explanatory information as hot links. Locations are all in right accession/declination and azimuth/altitude, so you need to have an idea of what these are, or a good skymap on hand. Give it a go.
