QUEST camera

The 10-square-degree QUEST camera, installed inside the 1.0-metre ESO Schmidt telescope at La Silla.

In 2009, the ESO 1.0-­metre Schmidt telescope at La Silla was awakened from an 11 ­year slumber. The telescope had been decommissioned in 1998 after completing a photographic survey of the southern hemisphere. It has now been given a new life with the insta­llation of Yale University’s 160­ mega­pixel QUEST camera
