VLT UT1

UT1 with the lower intermediate structures installed. Of particular interest were the developments around the UT1 telescope which grew in size both horizontally and vertically. The outer parts of the baseframe and the remainder of the hydrostatic bearings and pipework were installed. Thus the entire top of the pier was filled in by the large circular structure of the azimuth baseframe.
