Sunset view of Kitt Peak

This view of Kitt Peak just after sunset was taken from Gates Pass, a popular sunset viewing site in the Tucson Mountains west of Tucson. You can see at least 9 telescope domes in this view with the largest and most prominant on the right being the 4-meter Mayall Telescope. Our 36 inch Spacewatch telescope is the 3rd dome from the right with the 90 inch Bok telescope between it and the 4-meter. This image was taken at 300mm focal length with an exposure of 1/100 seconds at f/8, ISO 400.
