Reflections on SEST

Nico Housen, a software engineer based at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) took a fantastic picture of the milky way reflected in the Swedish-ESO Submillimetre Telescope (SEST). In the reflection you can also make out the light pollution from the city of La Serena which is about 100km away; nothing compared to Manchester! The picture was taken with a Nikon D100 digital camera with a 40 second exposure.
