The Kuiper 1.54 meter Telescope

While I surveyed for Near Earth Objects, my boss and a visiting astronomer from Paris configured the Kuiper Telescope and their instruments for the occultation of a star by Pluto, to occur on the morning of the 18th. The upper end of the telescope can be seen in the open slit.

This image is just one of a few thousand the camera took from dusk to dawn to make a time lapse animation. It is a little bit past my 40,000th exposure with the 20D.

30 seconds, 15mm @ f/ 5, ISO 1600
