Studio 11 Goes To Palomar Observatory
Another media free weekend getaway. This time we went up the mountain to Palomar. Beautiful place. Love the foliage around the facility.
At Palomar observatory I got a chance to use a solar telescope and my Canon 7D to get this shot,which shows some solar activity and prominences.
The main dome that houses the 200 inch telescope.
The 200” telescope itself. Tough shot, it was very dark, and I could only brace up against a nitrogen tank for this handheld 1/15th of a second exposure. Normally anything slower than 1/30 gets motion blur.
