I've always enjoyed the observing sessions held at the park. I've
never done a formal star count there to determine limiting magnitude,
but i'd guess it's a hair brighter at LRP than at the Farrington Point
site, though surprisingly with less prominent light domes. Since most
of the sessions i've been to have included at least a crescent moon,
it's hard to be sure, but i'd guess somewhere between LM 4.8 and 5.1.
Anybody have any better estimates?
