Preview: Palomar's New All-Sky Camera

Here is a preview shot from Palomar Observatory's new all-sky camera. This photo was taken last night right at moonrise. Our all-sky camera is not yet perfectly focused or installed in its final spot (It will be on the pole in the photo), but in this shot it did capture the Milky Way and a meteor.

I will announce it here when the camera is up and running. From time to time I'll post interesting images or movies as they come in.
