NOVA Night

Tonight a crew from PBS showed up at the VATT to film the LBT from our roof (my favorite photographic perch). "Brian" - the NOVA series cinematographer - sported a HUGE (and expensive) High Definition video camera with which to record the opening of the LBT building just past sunset. Although he was a godless "nikon" shooter (we all know - Canon Rules!)- I let him practice his trade anyway ;->

Here are a few shots of the picturesque scence.

"Brian" - the godless nikon shooter.

Looking East toward the LBT and SMT telescopes.

Hey Dave,

Crepuscular and anti-crepuscular. Now there are some words you don't hear very often. :) Very nice shots indeed. And Canon does rule. Darned godless Nikon shooters anyway. How's the vacation going?

That is a wonderful place to take pictures from at the VATT. Just another reason to ask for more telescope time there.

I was going to say something about those crepuscular and anti-crepuscular rays, but I think Dean has said enough already....
