Gemini North "Cloaked" Dome(old version)
Credit: Gemini Observatory
This invisible dome image of the Gemini North telescope was made by digitally stacking images of the open Gemini dome as it rotated. Approximately 40 individual 5-second exposures were stacked to produce the transparent dome effect, and one additional oneminute exposure was obtained of the sky following the dome rotation.
