Astrophoto: Beautiful View from the Top of Haleakala

As the Bad Astronomer has been known to say, “Holy Haleakala!” What an awesome view from the top of Haleakala, a massive shield volcano that forms more than 75% of the Hawaiian island of Maui. Astrophotographer Henry Weiland took this image on July 9, 2013 of his view from “on top of the world.” (He has a self portrait here.) He used a Canon EOS Rebel T3i with an 18-55mm lens.

We’re all jealous of your view, Henry!
