Observatory at Night

A random observatory with an optical telescope, on some random hill... (Why state the obvious anyway?)

This is one of the drawings I made after listening to music video of Keeno's arrangement of buzzG's Hoshi no Uta (Song of Stars), vocal by Kashitaro Ito. At the time, I didn't know the meaning of song's lyrics yet.

After I read dmnngn's translation of the song there, it turned out that it's quite the opposite of what I thought it to be: the song is not about looking out to other stars; it's about the earth itself, but from moon's perspective.

So in the end, this drawing has nothing in common with the song. Also, I didn't refer to a real star chart for this one, so the sky is a bit... (again) random.
