  • What is the current road condition up at top of the Kancamagus highway?

    I stopped at Kancamagus Highway to do astrophotography last August and would like to go up soon; are there tons of snow or are they mostly melted & you can park at the two locations near the top of the highway?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated! I tried looking through the cam but wasn't working and all the other sites aren't telling me much

    I just realized I posted in the wrong section, please move as necessary

    Hi, from what I'm hearing there is no snow on the Kancamagus. We haven't been up there recently though. Looking at the Mount Washington webcams they look like there is snow but only at a higher elevation than the Kanc. http://www.nhtourguide.com/live_webc...hington_nh.htm

    Astrophotography - sounds interesting!

      Good to know

      Yes, the area is considered to be better location for very clear sky. I'm from southern NH and there's too much light pollution down here so I'll go up there once in awhile.

        WOW! That photo is amazing!! Thanks for sharing!

        I took a few photos of the moon once through a telescope, using a cheap point and shoot camera. It didn't come out very clear but it was fun!

          Thank you I have few more on my Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/reflectingpixels

          The moon looks good! I haven't tried as I don't have a good zoom lens but one day. Just enjoying the warmer weather now

            Nice pics! The Nubble Lighthouse must have been hard to get the red light at the right moment. I've tried that before there and it took about 50 tries to get it!

            For the moon pic, I was just using a regular camera with a 4" refracting telescope with the largest eyepiece I could find. They do sell camera attachments now though. I haven't tried that. One day I hope to make my own telescope and I will add in a camera attachment... Someday!

              I like the pic of the Milky Way! The moon pic is nice I like the idea, too bad it didn't come out clearer though!

                I just came back from the Kancamangus highway and the roads and viewing areas are perfectly clear. Great picture!

                  Great! Did you notice if there were any closed campgrounds?

                    I saw a few that were open, I didn't see any closed signs, but I really wasn't looking for them. I was staying at a motel in Lincoln

                      Thanks! Always wondering about the campgrounds on the Kancamagus. How was the motel in Lincoln? I haven't stayed at a hotel/motel in the area. We always stay at the campgrounds there.

                        It was the Parkers Motel. I wont stay there again, it wasnt too bad but cleanliness issues were a factor in my decision. I used to camp but I dont have any gear anymore and I guess I prefer a bed.....lol

                          Good to know! I need to head up there before the humidity goes up. Just waiting for that perfect weather.

                            Those Landscape photos are incredible. What kind of gear are you using? (Lens, Body, Etc.)

                              Thank you

                              I've shot some with 60D including the Milky Way and recently with the 6D. Tamron 17-35 f2.8-f4 is what I use for most landscapes.
