So it sounds like you will be up and running there in about a year's time. Hopefully your assessment of local LP will be favorable once you've built the house, and you''ll then go ahead with the observatory.
Just in time to catch my favorite winter targets with any luck. I'll share my thoughts and observations of the LP here when the time comes. Hopefully it will help future members better understand what effects they could expect from a single source of light amidst otherwise dark skies. I may also end up outlining how I mitigate their effects here as well.
For the time being, we're off to the races. The permit application is in, and that should be complete by March. Covid furloughs at the county courthouse have greatly impacted the wait time for new permits, but that's a bit of a blessing in disguise because the excessive wait times are suppressing the price of new construction. I'll happily wait it out imaging from my suburban skies for the time being.
