From White Mountain 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 newsletters, and you can
view them 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!
