UVES at KUEYEN with cover partiy lifted

Click for larger image

UVES, the high-resolution spectrograph for the VLT, was installed at one of the two Nasmyth foci of KUEYEN in September 1999. The first observations have been very promising (ESO PR 15/99). In this view, the cover has been raised and some of the optical elements are visible, e.g. a large grating that serves to disperse the light.
