So I floated the idea to a couple of my buddies about going camping somewhere at a dark site where I could set my new scope (Evo 8) this summer. Late July. They're totally down with it.
I'm in CA, but my buddy from Ohio wants to meet in Vegas, maybe have a little fun for one night, then head out to the desert to camp under the stars for a couple nights. Does anyone know a good location anywhere in the vicinity of Vegas to do this? I'm not just talking about some place with low light pollution I can find on a light map, but a location where it's permitted and friendly to astronomers. Preferably one where we can camp, if at all possible. I would assume it has to be pretty far from Vegas as I can't imagine a city that's brighter at night!
We're also open to driving up to about 6 hours so perhaps the Mojave or Grand Canyon.
