Hi folks, looking around on the light pollution map, I've noticed that the darkest area near the NYC area (where I live) is a spot roughly 2.5 hours up in New York State around the Pepacton Reservoir near the towns of Downsville and Margaretville. I'm not sure of the lay of the land, but there seems to be some decent spots to shoot. Has anyone ever done any astrophotography in this area? If so, what are good spots? Any problems with wildlife at night?
Thanks for any info on this.
