Window on the universe

Alright, it's a corny title, I know, but sometimes it gets difficult finding a new perspective for photos at the summit, so here are a couple of reflection shots. The one above shows the NASA IRTF to the left, one of the twin Kecks to the right and behind them in the distance the 10,000 foot dormant volcano Haleakala on the island of Maui. The window belongs to the UKIRT.

Facing the other way, the UH 88-inch observatory to the left and Gemini on the right. In between is the somewhat less glamorous summit lunch hut where the daytime engineering crews go for lunch if they're feeling adventurous.

I think the summit window cleaner is a little overdue.

There is nothing corny about that title; in matter of fact it is perfect.;))
