Re: Cherry Springs
The park office is the size of a outhouse! The camping spots are not too bad. I went up during a meteor shower and there were still camping spots left. I slept in a tent and had a fire. I could see the milky way through my tent. The park ranger told me that the guys in the astronomy field get real mad if someone shines white light, so if your taking pictures and the back lcd screen shines i'm sure they'll yell at you. The public lot has dirt mounds to block car lights and i could see real good. Take a red light with you so you dont lose night vision when your looking and walking. Also, i got really wet with dew later in the night. My last picture was all blurry, so i checked my lens and it was coated with dew! Make sure you check the clear sky chart.
Not only is my short-term memory horrible, but so is my short-term memory.
