Stargazing conditions in Tonopah, NV ?

I may be traveling through Nevada next week, and have an opportunity to stop for an evening in Tonopah, NV for astrophotography and stargazing.   I've read it's one of the darkest places in the US.

Forecast - Sunny / Clear

Moon - Waning Crescent, 16% Visible.  
Moonrise 2:39AM.  
Astrological twilight 5:00am - 8:06pm

Am I missing anything?   I'm not an astronomer, but it seems like this should guarantee an absolutely vibrant night sky?
