Keep in mind that the best Astronomy is generally done in the dark. This doesn't mean standing next to a street/porch light. Optimally there would be no lights visible. Also remember it generally takes your eyes about a half hour to light adapt. Many astronomers that live in light polluted skies will travel a couple of hours ( ~ 60 miles away from any large city)! to a dark sky site. I see only 4th magnitude stars at my residence due to light pollution :(
