In this beautiful image by SAAO Astronomer Stephen Potter we see the Milky Way setting behind the 20, 30, 40 inch, MONET and SALT telescopes. Jupiter is the bright star at the top and Venus is setting into the MONET dome. The bright glow on the horizon is from distant city lights.
An image of the Galactic Centre clearly showing the dust lanes. It was one of the first images taken with the KELT-South telescope in September 2008. This images was a 60 second exposure and the field of view is 26×26 square degrees. Image Credit: Rudi Kuhn – KELT.
