Photo Adventure Maui Captures Satellite Laser

During our July Photo Adventure Maui we had the chance to see in action a laser used by NASA to track Satellites to make sure that they are staying on track. This laser rapid fires a laser at satellites and measures the time it takes to bounce the laser light back to the observatory. Really cool stuff. This on Maui at the top of Haleakala Summit at 10,000 feet elevation. I used a Canon 5Dmark2 with a Canon EF 24-70mm L USM  lens at 1600 iso f2.8 at 30 second exposure. Really great example of Night Photography and Star Photography.
