Very interesting Luka!  Must admit having been to BWCA many times I have only observed with binoculars at mostly overhead objects ... many campsites have skies partially obscured by trees!  The article's photos are great. 
Wonder if Ann Schwaller, BWCA program manager for the Superior National Forest, used a sky quality meter like the Unihedron. https://optcorp.com/products/uh-sqm-l-sky-quality-meter-with-lens-sqm-l?gclid=CjwKCAjw4_H6BRALEiwAvgfzq_K_vwJVbFuZRWEc1hnY7uAdd_WLM10akMN_VieeOkVgq9fFToVZlBoCeygQAvD_BwE. I saw one in use at Newport State Park in Wisc. several years ago when the NCRAL was held nearby.
