Since I'm about 2 hours drive away I was wondering if anyone here has been to Cherry Springs state park in Northern Pa(Potter county),suposedly the darkest place East of the Mississippi.It's a big gathering place for astronomy enthusiast and night sky photographers,They say it's so dark that you can see the Milky Way with your bare eyes.I'd love to get some nice night sky pictures and hopefully someone here has been there.anyone?
Thanks!!!
Paul

I haven't been there yet, but am trying to plan a trip. A few members of my astronomy club go there frequently and they keep tempting me.

I have a 6 month old boy and Cherry Springs will be his first camping trip.

The only problem is it's very hard to plan a trip. You shoot for a weekend, and then a few clouds can cancel your plans.
