"What can you do about the sky brightness? The most obvious thing is to get away from city lights...If you have a fixed observatory, you could always get a battery power source for your scope and then cut the power lines leaving your local electric power plant..." - W. Romanishin, An Introduction to Astronomical Photometry Using CCDs (2006)

Hmm...probably a lesson in how much the government *really* values science...
