The Steve Kufeld Astronomical Site (SKAS) which is situated ~ 60 miles north of Los Angeles, provides the LAAS members some escape from the city light. The site is equipped with two large reflecting telescopes: a 16 inch telescope (right) with equatorial mount and a 31 inch (Clyde-O-Scope, left) Newtonian on Alt-Alz mount.  Typical sky brightness on a dark sky night is approximately 21.2 magnitude/square arcsecond.

The monthly LAAS dark sky parties take place at this location.
