One for the astronomically (Telescope) minded

The annual Messier Marathon takes place the weekend of March 16th. For those who don't know what this is look at http://www.seds.org/messier/
For the past 2 years we've gone to Greenwater Valley to set up telescopes and view all 110 objects in one night.
The question is: What location in Death Valley NP, offers the best location. The criteria are that the site must have as close to flat (zero degree) horizions to the West, South West and South East.
We're looking for places within an hour or so's drive of Furnace Creek (other than Chloride Cliff, Aguereberry Point, Dantes's View and Ashford Mill).
