That amazing astronomical structure is the most important optic observatory of Argentina. It is located at Parque Nacional El Leoncito, which guards their skies, I never saw that kind of a sky in my life, it was transparent! amazing!... Inside the Jorge Sahade telescope a 2.15m amazing robot! Jorge Sagade was the initial idea of the creator, The sky shows the Milky Way from the southern skies and the Magellanic Cloud.

    Amazing skies, this image was shot during my break after a mid night filmed at CASLEO for the movie “el camino eterno” that we are filming with Planetario Ciudad de la Plata who I thanks and acknowledge the opportunity for me to make this shot.
