Blanco Telescope, Dark Energy Camara, LMC & SMC

This is one my favorite pictures I've ever taken. The (waning gibbous) moon was up, and provided enough light to expose the inside of the dome, but was also opposite the direction of the scope. This allowed me to use a single 30 second exposure to get this shot. I selectively processed the dome and night sky portions independently to make a nice, balanced exposure.
