A Transcendentalist place to go is a place where you can look at the stars. The trees in this picture represent how people reach for the stars. A peaceful and quiet place like this is definitely a transcendentalist location.

The 180 degree panorama on the left is the result of five photos stitched vertically. My D300 was set to ISO 3200 to pull off 30 sec exposures at f/2.8. The lens was a Tokina 11-16mm 2.8.    The very bright ball of light rising above the trees, on the left is Jupiter.    By Dan Newton

The Herschel Space Observatory's infrared view of Cygnus X spans some 6x2 degrees across one of the closest, massive star forming regions in the plane of our Milky Way galaxy. In fact, the rich stellar nursery already holds the massive star cluster known as the Cygnus OB2 association.

http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap110914.html    The Bubble and M52  Image Credit & Copyright: Lóránd Fényes    Embedded in a complex of interstellar dust and gas and blown by the winds from a single, massive O-type star, the Bubble Nebula, also known as NGC 7635, is a mere 10 light-years wide. On the other hand, M52 is a rich open cluster of around a thousand stars. The cluster is about 25 light-years across. Seen toward the northern boundary of Cassiopeia,...

To the eye, this cosmic composition nicely balances the Bubble Nebula at the lower right with open star cluster
