PANO ✨ 'Jacobus Kapteyn telescope under the core' ✨
Part of La Palma's ORM Isaac Newton group of telescopes, the Jacobus Kapteyn is a one-meter optical telescope that was jointly built by the Netherlands and the UK back in 1983. It was put out of service in August 2003 because it was surpassed by more performant telescopes. Today it is owned by the IAC and operated remotely by SARA. It still serves as an excellent accessible subject to photograph because it is the most elevated telescope of the group, offering an excellent vista from below when the central part of our galaxy passes behind.
This photograph is the result of a simple panorama without tracking taken at 135mm just using the amazing abilities of the Samyang 135mm f2 and the Sony a7s. Even with single shots taken only at 6'' exposure, look at how much details, sharpness and colors you can get!
