Zan's Stuff

I was unable to find lat/long and elevation information on the web about the parking lot on the top of Mt. Piños that is considered by many to be one of the best sites for amateur astronomy in Southern California. When I found it myself (using GPS, mapblast.com, mapquest.com, and terraserver.homeadvisor.microsoft.com), I decided to put it on the web.

Mt. Piños Parking Lot:
34.813298 Lat (~32º 48’ 47” N)
-119.126565 Long (~119º 7’ 35” W)
Elevation 8280ft (2524m)

Here is an aerial picture of the site (the different color channels were taken at different times of day with different shadows, hence the color artifacts)
