Abstract
Eighteen years of observing data for the largest telescopes at Kitt Peak National Observatory and six years of similar data at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory are given in Tables 1 and 2. Precipitation data for the same period at KPNO are contained in Table 4. Some summaries of these data and a few conclusions useful for telescope design considerations are discussed.
