(IAAC) Dark Skies

     Thanks for the light pollution perspective on Ft. Collins.  It was hard
for me to know as I didn't really know what to compare it to.  You're right
though, up in the mountains on a clear night the view is astounding.  It's
too bad you didn't get to stay a little longer to see it for yourself.  I
guess I'll have to pack up my scope and head up there.  If it wasn't such a
chore getting it into my small car I'd have done it already.
Clear skies,
