The Southern Sky Through SALT

The Southern Sky Through SALT

While working on a documentary film about astronomy, I was granted opportunity to spend a week at the South African Astronomical Observatory in Sutherland, South Africa. This single exposure is reduced by a single dark image to remove the hot pixels. Canon 60D, Tokina 12-24 at 12mm, F4, 15 seconds. To spend a night inside of SALT felt to me like a ride on a space craft, the window overhead a portal to the universe which I explored.
