The Mauna Kea Science Reserve sprawls over more than 11-thousand acres atop Hawai`i’s tallest mountain. Among the instruments and facilities is the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope—which cuts through space dust to get a better look at the heavens.

Here are some photos from the trip to the JCMT, including with Associate Director Dr. Antonio Chrysostomou:
