How long will it take for the Pentagon to release something official on the ultra-stealthy long-range unmanned air vehicle that (according to intel, and reasonable analysis of the open-source tea-leaves) Northrop Grumman is building and preparing for flight test at Groom Lake
The classified UAV is believed to be about the size of a Global Hawk but with Northrop Grumman’s trademark “cranked-kite” shape, It has been described as incorporating both a high degree of stealth and a very efficient aerodynamic design.

has gotten too much public attention in the last few years.
Climb Tikaboo peak. To get a good image, you are looking at a 120 to 200mm scope, with camera and mounts. If you think your approach and climb isn't fully monitored, then I guess you missed the new camera up there. You are not going to see anything, not even lights at night anymore due to that installation.
You need more like 2000mm equivalent focal length to photograph Groom Lake from TIkaboo. This is done by adding a barlow to the telescope (typically Televue Powermate) or with eyepiece projection.
They still turn on the lights at the base after the DRI camera was installed.
