Looking for Santa

I was observing on Kitt Peak the night before x-mas and setup a timelapse outside my dome.  Here the Spacewatch 1.8-m telescope dome is front and center with the winter Milky Way looking like smoke rising from its chimney.  Orion is prominent above and right of the dome as is Taurus near the top of the frame above Orion.  Jupiter is the bright object above and left of the dome.  This image was taken with my 10mm fisheye lens on my Canon 70D with an exposure of 30 seconds at f/2.8, ISO 3200.
