The North Celestial Pole

North Celestial Pole and the Skyview Observatory

Looking North over the Skyview Observatory.
30 second exposures. Modified Canon Digital Rebel DSLR camera.

The stars circle around the North Celestial Pole while I work in the dome with the 20" telescope. Outside is my 5" refractor which I was using for widde-field, narrow-band imaging. Planes are occassionally seen passing through the field. The red glow was caused by the computer controlling the CCD on the 5" telescope.
