It would have been better to ask about "which conditions must have a good starsighting place".

It must be:

  • Dark
  • Far from cities
  • Not under main flight paths (this depends on which altitude is the object you want to observe)
  • High altitude (or any special place with low cloud formation and low turbulence)
  • Far from big water bodies that can cause local humidity
