DAS Dark Site
Quote:Palomar is in a "green zone" and there is a "blue zone" just a short distance away to the SE. Also, the blue zone is farther away from the ocean and much less likely to get clouded over (Palomar often is).Since you're going to travel anyway, try a somewhat darker site.If you're a photographer, fine, but for visual observing, Palomar is a little too bright, IMO.
