At 5000 Meters high on ALMA observatory on Chilean Altiplano, a photographer equipped with oxygen capsule is taking pictures of the Milky Way over the telescopes using a Polarie star tracker and a Canon 6D camera. Both equipment worked perfectly at this extreme condition and -20 C (-5 F) temperature. Images and reports of our 2014 ESO imaging expedition: www.eso.org/public/outreach/ultra-high-definition/blog
