I've done Googling for hours and I just need to ask a local at this point.
I'm planning on heading out to the middle of nowhere (Cuchillo - past Truth or Consequences) for a night of night sky photography - provided the weather is clear for only one night on the Thursday night before Christmas.
Is the sky usually clear at night or will it be likely I won't see anything due to nightly overcast? Or will I just have to watch the weather report and see like everyone else? :)
Being from LA, in winter we get nightly fog rolling in so you almost never see the sky in winter. Just wondering if there's a similar phenomena in the desert of NM such that I shouldn't even bother trying to do starry sky photography.
And no, I'm not worried about the cold. I'll be using digital rather than 35mm so that's not an issue.
