Meanwhile, back to the office... Here's the 1.5 meter telescope on Mt. Lemmon, 9157 feet above sea level. This night was the second to last night before we shut down for the Full Moon in February. Clouds, the bright moonlight and poor seeing conspired to make this an unproductive night, work wise. Polaris, or the Northern Star, is the brightest one over the dome. Polaris is the end of the handle of the "Little Dipper" or Ursa Minor, which can be seen curving down to the right. This shot was one of a series taken for an animation. The image was stretched and the levels slightly adjusted to bring out the dark blue of the sky and the stars beyond. Canon 20D - 30 seconds, 20mm @ f/1.8, ISO 400
