Quote:I too would be interested to see what the light pollution is like having not yet been to the site.
Quote:There is always a concern with security in remote observatory settings. Gene has told us that there will be someone living one site at all times. That should help significantly. If the popularity of the development increases to the point where that are always visitors present, then security should be better than most remote observatories. That is not to say that you are really safe esp from a determined knowledgeable thief.
