Evening at the Plaskett

Evening at the Plaskett

Star trails of Pleiades, Taurus and Orion dominate the sky behind the historic Plaskett telescope while Victoria Centre RASC members are treated to an imaging session inside by operator Dave Balam. The Plaskett dome shows the effect of movement as Dave pointed the scope at several of our targets. A video from the same night can be found at http://vimeo.com/17496881
