the texas skies are much better out in West Texas. Here in Houston, there is a lot of light pollution. I can drive 2 to 4 hours west of here to get some ok dark skies. But much further west, out in Ft. Davis, the skies are extremely nice. Its about a 10 hour drive from here.

I participated in the Texas Star Party several years ago for about 4 years at the end April/May time frame. The skies are so dark and there are so many more naked eye stars its just amazing.

here are some of my photos from the Texas Star Party. my site is running pretty slow for some reason so please be patient
