You can just email Attilla Danko (his email address is on the site) and request a CSC for your location. He'll put it up within 24 hours. And he'd appreciate a small donation to help defray the costs.
I am wanting to use some kind of device that detects the sky quality and can display it over time. that way I can review the sky quality over the night and predict the upcoming quality with some degree of accuracy. there isnt a clear sky chart for my location. hoping maybe I can make something or spend $100 or less.

Depends on what you mean by sky quality. The Unihedron Sky Quality meters do a great job of measure the sky's darkness. They have an ethernet model that, with a connected compter, can graph how dark your sky is over time.
If you mean how clear is the sky, then for prediction, I agree with shneor ... ask Atilla to set up a CSC for your location.
