60" Bathed in Moonlight

The Mt. Lemmon Survey 60" telescope works the southern ecliptic as the first quarter moon of September illuminates the scene. Polaris, or the North Star is the brightest star seen directly over the telescope. Polaris is at the end of the handle of the "Little Dipper" (Ursa Minor) which is upside down and curving towards the left in this image.
Canon 20D - 30 seconds, 20mm @ f/1.8, ISO 400
