WIYN telescope & Canopus
This image was taken Sunday morning from Kitt Peak and shows the WIYN telescope near center and the old 36 inch telescope of Kitt Peak at left. Just above the left part of the WIYN building is the southern hemisphere star Canopus near its transit. Faint clouds are visible in the sky as well (and it was windy that night too!). This image was taken with my 24mm lens attached to my 20D. The exposure was 30 seconds at f/1.8, ISO 1600.
