Peering Skyward

From the photographer: "On the night of September 14/15, 2012, I spent the night at GMARS (Goat Mountain Astronomical Research Station)—the dark sky observing site of the Riverside Astronomical Society near Landers, California. While astronomers were busy imaging the wonders of the cosmos with fantastic high-tech telescopes, I was busy photographing their fantastic high-tech telescopes. This shot of Alex McConahay's observatory features its centerpiece—a Meade 10-inch f/4.5 Newtonian—aimed straight up toward the zenith. Above the roll-off-roof structure appears a sky full of stars and the hazy band of the Milky Way." Dennis Mammana/
