5 of 5 Why did I avoid getting this? Its great! August 9, 2022
Reviewer: Greg from Phoenix  
I usually view from home so I always figured I didn't really need an SQM but there are many benefits of owning one: You can log your measurements daily at your site and even upload them to worldwide databases so they can provide accurate data in your area, you can gauge which dark site it better for you, and you are actually getting a live and accurate measurement despite what websites or apps tell you that particular location is rated at.
It's phenomenal and well built. I plan on using it every observing session.
