- Country: United States
- Nearest Town: Kona
- Best Season: Spring
- Description: The summit of Mauna Kea (4,205 m 13,796 ft), the world's tallest mountain if measured from its base on the ocean floor, is the best place on earth for astronomical observations because its mid-Pacific site is near the equator and because it enjoys clear, pollution-free skies and pitch-black nights with no urban light to interfere. That's why Mauna Kea is home to the world's largest telescope.
- Gear: Nikon D300, 18-200 mm lens
