Ths is an 8-shot handheld panorama looking SSW from near the summit of Mauna Kea.

It was taken in December 2008.

California Institute of Technology 10.4m Submillimeter Telescope (CSO)
James Clerk Maxwell Telescope
Submillimeter Array
Subaru Telescope

Unfortunately the last image doesn't line up too well due to the handheld nature of the shots.
