Thanks Mark, keep watching, you will see it for sure.

Brian, I know how you feel, the LP in NI is dreadful, it seems one can't escape from it at all, often I have found a good dark spot in the country only for it to be destroyed by one single house security light left on all night long destroying any photo opps, people are so inconsiderate, why must an outdoor light be on all night for?. That's nothing compared to the football pitch I saw a few nights ago, it was closed - nobody here- but the huge flood lights remained on for a long time, the light was going straight up into the sky - an absolute disgrace. Something needs to be done about it before it's too late.

I believe the ZL does vary in brightness due to the variation in density of dust particles in the disk. It really does look slightly different in brightness each night.
