Star trails over SEST

The Swedish-ESO Submillimetre Telescope (SEST) was decommissioned in 2003 to make way for the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment telescope (APEX) and the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA). The retired telescope still sits on its mountaintop in the Chilean Atacama Desert at ESO's La Silla Observatory.
