Smokey Jack Observatory (SJO) is available by making reservations directly with the Master Guide, Mr. Clint Smith (clintsmith5555 at live.com). Generally, the best (and warmest) months are May through September since the SJO is open to the environment to allow the telescope to be at a stable temperature with the outside air. The observatory is in Westcliffe, Colorado, a very friendly International Dark Skies Community (http://www.wetmtndarkskies.org). It is a couple of hours drive south of the Denver airport, an hour from Colorado Springs airport.
