UH88 with Star Trails

A colleague asked if I could come up with some desktop wallpaper of UH88 with star trails, so I took a couple long (12-15 minute) exposures, with star trails and a little bit of dome tracking movement. This shot happened to contain a couple possible meteors from the Lyrid shower - 1 long and 1 short streak are visible at most resolutions, and at higher resolutions, a second, fainter long streak may be noticed above the first.  It is, of course, not cleared for commercial use.
