Domes and domes

These "Astro Haven" domes are occupied by various telescopes that can be rented and remotely operated. These domes remind me of spacesuit helmets and open by rolling the segments over the top of the dome, giving the telescope protection from one direction from the wind. This image was taken at 38mm focal length with an exposure of 1/500 seconds at f/8, ISO 200 with a polarizer.
