Sunset on Kitt Peak

While observing at the Steward Observatory 90 inch Bok Telescope, we got this view to the south around sunset. It was a pretty sunset for a photographer, but not very pretty for an astronomer..... This view shows the Spacewatch 36 inch dome in the foreground and the 3.5-meter WIYN telescope in the background. This image was taken with my 20D with an exposure of 1/60 seconds at f/5.6 and ISO 400 with my kit lens at 55mm focal length.
