It may look small, but this image is anything but small, click on it to find out. The panorama is assembled from seven frames, with final dimensions of over 12,000 x 2,000 pixels. The version posted here is a bit smaller, only 4,000 pixels wide. While it is a big image it does not really come close to the effect of actually standing there beside the camera. Also missing from the photo? The biting cold wind.
The image includes ten telescopes, two planets, two galaxies, two meteors, four volcanoes, and innumerable stars.

Nice! Love Andromeda as extended object!
I want to know how you caught 2 meteors in 140 seconds of exposure?! Great job – wish I could do large images in blogger (>1600 pixels wide). -Dean
Brilliant! Love the celestial eye candy.
