Mauna Kea Heavens 2

Sans titre-1

Shown here is timelapse of the observatories atop Mauna Kea, on the Big Island of Hawaii. The summit is at an altitude of nearly 14,000 ft (4200 m) and is the premiere site for astronomy in the Northern Hemisphere. Many of the scenes include the laser adaptive optics systems of the telescopes, which are used to correct for the turbulence of the atmosphere and thereby obtain sharper images.
