LED lights

I must admit I am rather surprised that it has taken so long for the general BAA membership to wake up to this as it has been known for a long time that there are issues with the blue rich lighting and the colour temperature of installed LED’s. I would have thought the CfDS would have been banging this drum for quite a while. Of course if they have then the message has not been getting through. It is bad not just for humans but for most nocturnal species.

It is certainly going to destroy visual deep sky observing as the filters that have helped us so much over the years will be dramatically reduced in effectiveness by this change.
