Visiting the Astronomers

La Palma is one of the best spots on the planet for looking deep into the night sky. No wonder it is well known by astronomers and astrophysicists. During the Astromaster 2016 workshop our group had the opportunity (and special permission) to shoot during the night at the Observatory at the Roque de los Muchachos, 2400m above sea level.

Here's a short glimpse of last night, featuring the Hershel telescope
