Newsletter From White Mountain Research Station

Every year, we rent time up at the Barcroft High Altitude Research Station in the White Mountains to provide our members with an opportunity to gain access to "research-grade" night skies. Well, they have begun publishing their own newsletter, and you can view it here. It's full of info about the three facilities they make available, one of which is Barcroft, and it's chock-full of interesting stuff about these sites. Check it out!
