The E-ELT on Cerro Armazones (artist's impression)
Artist's impression of the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) on Cerro Armazones, a 3060-metre mountaintop in Chile's Atacama Desert. The E-ELT will be the largest optical/infrared telescope in the world — the world's biggest eye on the sky.
The design for the E-ELT shown here was published in 2011 and is preliminary.
