Keck in Motion – Andrew Cooper

Here’s a new, lively short video that shows a lot of typical things that go on at Keck Observatory’s twin telescopes over the course of 24 hours. This video was created by Andrew Cooper, a Keck Observatory electrical engineer who is also one great photographer and videographer on the side. You can keep track of Andrew’s many activities at his blog: A Darker View
