We were at the 9300 foot level of Mauna Kea in June 2011 and stopped at the visitor center. But we were mostly fogged in and could not use the telescopes that are usually available each evening. Eventually it cleared up a bit and we could see some stars. I pulled out my camera, no tripod, placed it on a fence post and took a few shots. This was the best of the bunch. A bit of a flare around the moon but you can see a lot of the stars that we could see. On a clear night this is one of the best places in the world to stargaze! Taken on the Big Island of Hawaii USA with a Canon 5D and a 28-135 at 30 second exposure, F3.5 iso 800.
