From the photographer: "The 2.3m Aristarchos telescope is the largest research infrastructure of the National Observatory of Athens (NOA). It is an f/8 Ritchey-Chretien telescope, built by the Germany company Carl Zeiss GmbH, which has an established tradition in telescope design and construction. The Institute of Astronomy Astrophysics Space Applications and Remote Sensing (IAASARS) of NOA manages the telescope, which is located at an altitude of 2340m at Helmos Observatory, approximately 220 km southwest of Athens, near the city of Kalavryta."
