What can you see when you look around Mauna Kea?

Please take a look at the 360 degree panoramic image. 400 Kb JPEG or 7.9 Mb Windows bitmap.

The panorama shows, left to right: Glenn Orton standing infront of NASA's Infrared Telescope Facility (IRTF) 3 m, Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) 3.6 m, Gemini North 8 m, University of Hawaii 88 inch, United Kingdom Infrared Telescope (UKIRT) 3.8 m, University of Hawaii 24 inch, Mauna Loa volcano in the distance, James Clerk Maxell Telescope (JCMT) 15-m submillimeter telescope, Subaru 8.2 m, twin W.M. Keck Observatory 10 m. Hidden from view are: Caltech Submillimeter Observatory (CSO) 10.4 m, and Harvard-Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory SubMillimeter Array (SMA).

Images were taken by Mark B. Vincent during his trip to IRTF to look over Glenn Orton's shoulder during his October 2000 observing run. Thanks Glenn for standing still for the image! The images were taken with a Nikon Coolpix 800 digital camera. The panoramic was generated in Adobe Photoshop Elements.
