Opening of Second Pier-Coming Soon

We expect to open our second pier for lease in the coming weeks. If you would like to inquire about future availability we would be glad to speak with you. We at SKYPi are committed to providing the best possible service to go along with our Bortle 1 skies and superb seeing. Our seeing monitor will be posted soon. It has been operational for only a week and our average has been just over 1 arc second. Sub arc second seeing has not been uncommon.
