John Hlynialuk captured this image of the night sky from their roll-off roof observatory (the ES Fox Obs.) just outside Wiarton Ontario on October 22, 2011. John can bee seen peeking at the eyepiece.

“Image shows our 12 inch reflector -a donation by the University of Guelph to our club, the Bluewater Astronomical Society.”

The photo is a 30 second exposure with a 10 mm focal length lens at f2.8 on a Canon 50D camera attached to a tripod at ISO 1600.
